Bread Rolls


4 cups + 2tbsp(for dusting) All Purpose Flour (Maida)
1 1/2tsp Dry Active Yeast
1 1/2tsp Sugar
1 1/2tsp Salt
2 + 1 Eggs
1 cup Milk (Warm)
4tbsp + 1tbsp( for brushing) Unsalted Butter 
How to:
  • In a bowl, mix together yeast, sugar and milk. Let sit for 10 mins.

  • Beat the eggs and bring the butter to room temperature.

  • Now pour the eggs and butter to the yeast mixture and beat well.

  • In another big bowl, add the APF, salt and make a well at the center. Then pour the egg-butter-yeast mixture and start kneading.

  • Add flour if the dough is sticky. Also make sure there is no dry flour left at the sides.
  • Place the dough on a flat, flour-dusted surface and start stretching and folding the dough for roughly 5-6 mins.

  • Now place the dough back in the bowl, apply butter, wrap it up and let rest for 1 1/2hrs for the dough to double in size.

  • Once the dough has risen, punch it with your fist to remove the air filled inside the dough.

  • Re-wrap the dough and let sit for another 10 mins. Also, brush butter on the baking sheet and muffin pan, and keep aside. Beat 1 egg with 2tsp water and keep aside.
  • Now, divide the dough into required sizes and start making rolls of any shape and place the rolled-shaped dough on the buttered baking sheet.

  • Cover the dough with a wet cloth and let rest for 30 mins for the dough to rise again.

  • Preheat the oven at 425 degrees F. 
  • Then, brush the dough with beaten egg and bake for 16 mins.

  • Once removed from the oven, brush butter on the hot bread rolls.

Serve warm with jam or jelly.

  • Let cool for 25-30 mins on the rack, before storing.
  • Store in a zipper bag at room temperature for up to 4 days. (Remove the air inside the bag.)
