Soft Garlic Rolls

                               These garlic rolls are absolutely heaven! They are REALLY REALLY soft! You have to try them to believe me. Such flavour........sigh! Another of my yeast experiments :)

                               I saw this recipe at nags space and immediately made up my mind to try it out the next day! She's got alot of yummy recipes I intend to try out soon :)

for the dough:
1.5 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp warm water
1/2 tbsp instant yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp olive oil (more for greasing)

for the garlic spread:
3 tbsps salted butter at room temperature
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsps garlic, minced
2tbsp chopped coriander leaves

for garnish:
1 tsp sesame seeds (optional)

  • Mix the flour, yeast, salt, sugar, oil and water until you get a smooth and soft dough.  knead for a few minutes. when pulled slightly it should be elastic.
  • Add oil to your finger tips and knead for about 4 minutes. when pressed with your fringers it should slightly spring back.
  • keep it in a slightly greased bowl, covered with cling wrap and keep it in a warm place for the dough to double in size.(about 45 mins)

  • In the meanwhile we can make the garlic spread by mixing all the ingredients stated above .

  • Grease a baking pan or loaf tin with olive oil. I used my Pyrex loaf pan which was the perfect size for 8 mini garlic rolls.
  • After your dough has doubled in volume, punch down the air and divide the dough into 2 equal portions.

  • Transfer one portion of the dough to a floured surface and roll gently into a rough rectangle of 1/2" thickness. Apply more flour sparingly if sticky. 
  • spread about 2 tsps garlic spread on one side.

  • roll from one end gently and firmly.
  • cut into 2 halves.
  • take each half and cut again, to get four equal halves.

  •   Now place the rolls with the cut side up in the greased pan. Repeat the same procedure for the remaining dough.
  • Spread a little milk on the rolls and add the remaining garlic spread on top.sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.

  •  leave to rise for another 20 mins.

  • bake in preheated oven at 180 deg celcius for about 20-25 mins until the tops are golden brown.
