But this time though after placing the dough in the vessel, covered it with a damp cloth and I went about my work and when I accidentally looked at it I could see the dough pushing against the cloth. When I opened the cloth I was taken aback to find that the vessel is full. There is no space for the dough to raise or is it rise….. and it is only just 20 min after I placed it for resting… I was undoubtedly elated but still I can feel happy only at the end of the baking right as I get to find out the result.
Homemade Dinner Rolls / Indian Pav Buns
(Print this Recipe)
- All purpose flour – 3- ½ Cups + more for dusting
- Active Dry Yeast – 2 ¼ tsp
- Warm water – ¼ cup
- Butter – 3 tbsp
- Milk – 1 cup
- Sugar – 2 tbsp
- Egg – 1 (Optional) (I did not use it)
- Salt – ¾ tsp
- Vegetable oil – for greasing
- I did not use egg while making this roll.
- Check the yeast by proofing a little amount in warm water to which a tbsp of sugar is added. If it does not become frothy after 10 min the yeast is dead and so discard it. If you are to go ahead without checking it, your dough will not raise at all.
- The water should be warm and not hot. Hot water kills yeast.
- Like wise the milk has to be hot enough for the butter to melt but not scalding hot.
- You can also brush the top with butter or egg white instead of milk.
- Microwaving the cold rolls for a min will make them soft and bring them back to life.
- Oven timings may vary accordingly.
