I have just noticed that for the past few posts, I’ve been only posting desserts or snacks rather than some hard core meals!!! I guess it’s time to break that trend at-least for some time. So after today’s post, hopefully I will post some meals… These garlic rolls are too good… I have taken this recipe from Suhaina’s My Singapore Kitchen, just like how I had done for the Mini Sausage Rolls I posted sometime back. Actually speaking, I lost my fear of working with yeast, once I had made these two recipes from her page. This is also one no-fail good recipe, which I have made a couple of times and have turned out well each time…
Updated with new pictures on July 30, 2016! You may see that I am in the process of revisiting a few of my old posts and updating lousy pictures on the blog… hehe… though I will be doing the process as and when I have updates to do… I found a tip while baking these rolls – if you get a white top even after the prescribed baking time, turn your gas knob to grill and leave your buns for not more than 3 minutes. You will get a beautiful golden top, like you see in the above pictures. 🙂 You can do the same process while baking puffs too! Hope you like this update… 🙂
Below is the old picture… 🙂
Eggless Garlic Zaatar (Thyme) Rolls
- FOR THE DOUGH:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup water
- 3/4 tbsp instant yeast
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1-1/2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tbsp oil
- FOR THE FILLING:
- 50 gm butter
- 2 tbsp garlic paste
- 2 tsp zaatar - dried thyme
- A pinch of salt
- Sesame seeds for sprinkling
- Milk for brushing
- First let's prepare the dough. Mix all the ingredients except the oil in a large bowl and knead into a smooth dough.
- Finally knead well again with oil. Cover the bowl with a muslin cloth and keep aside for 1 hour or till it doubles in size.
- Soften the butter. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well until combined. Keep aside.
- Grease an 8 inch cake pan well and set aside.
- Once the dough doubles in size, punch the dough and divide into two balls.
- Flatten one ball into a large rectangular shape.
- Spread the garlic zaatar butter into the center
- Roll the dough to represent a long tube. Cut into four pieces and place in the pan.
- Do the same thing with the remaining dough.
- Keep closed with a muslin cloth for further 20-25 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 170 degrees.
- Pull out the pan, sprinkle sesame seeds lavishly and brush lightly with milk.
- Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes till a golden crust develops. Serve warm!!!
