These rolls are superb…super soft, buttery & the garlic flavor is just heavenly. It was like one day in a tea party my friends were discussing about this. It sounded very interesting and as I never had them before so I made a note in my mind to find out about this recipe. After I came home, goggled about it and prepared in evening along with pizza. They were absolutely amazing combination. A must try side dish if you are bold to try something new. So friends here we go…
Plain Flour - 1.5 cups
Luke Warm milk- 1/2 cup
Dry Yeast - 1/2 tbsp
Salt - 1tsp
Sugar - 1 tbsp
Olive Oil – 1/4th cup
For Garlic Spread:
Salted butter, at room temperature - 4 tbsp
Minced garlic - 2 tbsp
Dried basil & oregano - 2 tbsp (you can use chopped coriander leaves or other fresh herbs)
Preheat the oven at 450 degree Fahrenheit. Mix sugar with Luke warm milk. Mix flour, yeast, salt together. Slowly add warm milk (The milk should not be hot otherwise it will kill the yeast). Add oil and knead until you get a smooth, slightly stick dough.
Cover it and allow the dough to rise by keeping in a warm place for about 45 mins.
Now make the garlic spread by mixing butter, herbs & minced garlic .
Now Grease a baking pan with oil or spray. Punch down the air in the dough and divide the dough into two equal portions. Now roll the dough using rolling pin & apply little flour to prevent sticking. Roll the dough in to a rectangle shape at least ½ inch thick.
Spread about 2 tbsp of garlic spread on one side. Roll from one end gently and firmly. Cut into half and then each half again into two halves to get 4 equal portions. 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 & sesame seeds on top.
keep like this for another 20 min. to rise.
Now bake for 15-20 mins in the preheated oven. Serve hot nd njoy
