Garlic Rolls


Its been raining occasions to celebrate :) Hoooorey!!!! this is my hat-trick celebration post :)

Its my 100th post of this year :) and probably the last one for 2010 too :) Though it sounds like a little lazy for 365 days, I'm happy that I made a century this year :)

When the occasion is special, the recipe should be a special one too. Yup!! Garlic rolls have made me drool in dreams and also has been a nightmare for me since I terribly failed making buns last occasion.

This recipe is from Suhaina's blog and was tested enough by my fellow bloggers. :) Pretty popular recipe I guess :) So I was kind of sure that it wont go wrong and gave it a bold try. Special thanks to Sharmilee who encouraged me and cleared my doubts while trying it out ;)

It was a super dooper hit at home and I totally fell in love with its look, aroma and texture :) It was so good to have along with a cup of tea at my Sudoku solving time ;)

I still don't believe that I made garlic rolls at home!!!! Pinch my hand.. oh yeah its true and I am jumping in joy :) Yupeeeeeeeee :)



All purpose flour(Maida) - 3 cups
Warm water - 1 cup
Yeast - 1 tbl spn
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Salt - a pinch
Olive oil - 2 tbsp
Sesame seeds - 1 tsp

For Garlic spread:

Garlic - 5 pods
Butter - 3 tblsp
Coriander leaves(chopped) - 2 tbl sp
Green chilly - 1
Salt - for taste


Method to make Garlic spread:

Grind the coriander leaves and green chilly into a fine paste.

Mix it along with butter and salt.


Method for making rolls:

Drop the yeast, salt and sugar in warm water and beat until everything dissolves.

Add the sifted maida to the above ingredients and kneed well until you get a smooth dough.

Finally add olive oil and kneed for a while till the dough springs back when you press with your finger.

Leave the dough in a greased bowl and cover it with cling film or wet cloth. Allow it untouched for an hour. The dough will double in size by then.

Now knock down the air in the dough and kneed again for few mins. Divide the dough into two parts and roll it into a rectangle using the rolling pin. The rolled rectangle should be half an inch thick.

Apply the garlic butter on the dough evenly. Now roll it carefully into a log and cut it into four equal parts.

Do the same for the remaining dough too.

Place them into a well greased baking tray or bread loaf tin.

Now apply the remaining garlic butter spread on top of the rolls and also apply some milk on the sides and top to give the rolls the shiny look. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top of the rolls.

Now leave this along for another 20 mins for it to slightly raise in size.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Bake the rolls for 25-30 mins.

Super yummy garlic rolls are ready to eat :)

Enjoy the hot and fresh home made garlic rolls :)

This quantity would make 8 big garlic rolls.



You can use half the quantity of maida and replace the remaining half with wheat flour.

You can skip the green chilly to make milder tasting rolls. Or increase the chilly for hotter rolls :)

Eat them hot just after it is out from the oven for best results :)

You can store the rolls for a day or two.
