I have been waiting to bake these delicious buns also called dinner rolls for a long time, but kept postponing all these months. But today, when I saw this easy to make recipe, I couldn't resist. So here I am with the finished product in our tummies, trying to recollect the yummy taste and putting it all together in this post. I was inspired by Bharathy of spicychilly and I almost made it as per her recipe except for the addition of mint in mine. Also the baking time and the dough prep times are different. But the dinner rolls just disappeared and we were kind of fighting for the last one!! So I got to bake these delicious buns again this week. Thanks again to Bharathy.

Ingredients -

All Purpose flour 1 cup
Yeast 1/2 tsp
Sugar 1/2 tsp
Mint finely chopped 1 Tbsp
Garlic Minced 1 tsp (Optional)
Coriander leaves finely chopped 1 Tbsp
Green chillies finely chopped 1/2 tsp
Butter or Olive oil 3 Tsp
Salt as per taste

Method Of Preparation - 

In a small cup of luke warm water (about 3 Tbsp), add  yeast, a pinch of salt and 1/2 tsp of sugar and keep it in a warm place for about 10-15 min until it becomes frothy. If it is not frothy, then the yeast is not working and therefore discard it.

In a mixing bowl, add all purpose flour, mint, garlic, coriander leaves, green chillies, 2 tsp of butter and salt as per taste. Add the frothy yeast and make a pliable dough and knead well.

In a greased bowl, roll the dough in the bowl, so that the dough has a greased outer layer and keep it covered in a warm place for about 2 hrs. I switched on the light in the oven to keep it warm and placed the dough in the oven. If there is a warm setting in the oven, keeping in that setting for a while also would work.

After couple of hrs, the dough would have doubled in size. Punch into the dough to remove the trapped air and make equal parts of the dough to make rolls (of about 1 inch diameter or a table tennis ball) and place those rolls (I made about 7 of them) on a greased cookie sheet and cover it for another 20-30 min. The rolls will further increase in size.
Meanwhile preheat the oven at 400 deg F. Brush the tops of the rolls with the remaining butter and place the rolls in the oven and bake for 25 min until the rolls are brown and look done.

Take the rolls out of the oven and brush them again with butter/olive oil for a glazed look (Optional).

Makes about 7 rolls
Dough Preparation time 2 1/2 hrs
Baking time 25 min
