Eggless garlic rolls

Garlic rolls

Being in the bay area, my husband and I have never missed the garlic festival that  happens in Gilroy every year. We are just amazed by the array of dishes that’s been prepared and processed using garlic and sold there… from garlic pop corns to garlic ice cream.. yeah you heard me right 🙂 garlic ice-cream ! It actually tastes great, with just right amount of garlic in it.

I always buy a string of garlic bunch when I am there and it remains fresh for weeks or even months! Having few heads remaining, I thought of preparing this rolls yesterday and it turned out great… Little crispy on the top and bottom middle part being super soft and fluffy.

Makes 8 individual roll

I reduced the original recipe to half.

Ingredients:

Plain Flour- 1 1/2 cup

Warm water-1/2 cup+2 tbsp

Yeast-1/2 tbsp

Salt- 1/2 tsp

Sugar-1 tbsp

Extra virgin olive oil- 1 1/2 tbsp

Sesame seeds and milk- 1 tbsp each

Garlic spread:

Garlic clove-2 tbsp minced

Salted butter- 25 grams (room temp)

Cilantro- 2 tbsp

Method: For making dough

Mix plain flour, yeast, sugar and salt with warm water, knead well. (Add water slowly and mix. Depending on the flour, we might need little less water or few tablespoons more)

Garlic rolls- dough

The dough should be a little sticky. Add olive oil to your finger tips and knead the dough for 3-4 minutes until all the olive oil has been used up. Cover and keep the dough aside for 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the spread by mixing  salted butter, garlic and cilantro and keep aside.

Dough would have puffed up to double its original size, when ready. Knock the air out. Divide the dough into two parts and roll each dough to 1/2 inch thick round. (sprinkle flour if it’s too sticky).

Spread the garlic mix to two parts equally leaving behind a tablespoon for the end.

Roll them and cut  each roll into 4 equal parts.

Grease a loaf pan. I used 3/8 lb bread loaf pan. Arrange the cut side on top and spread the remaining mix on top. Spread little milk on top and add sesame seeds. Allow it to further puff for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile pre-heat the oven to 360 degree Fahrenheit.

Bake for 25 minutes. (Time may vary depending on the oven and temperature). Rolls are ready when they turn light golden-yellow on top and your kitchen filled with wonderful aroma! Serve it hot….
