This is 3 rd bread post I am posting for this month. All the breads are for the baking groups I had joined.
This bread was the challenge of baking Egg-less group Happening @ Gayatri's cookspot and the dinner rolls is suggested by priya of enveetu kitchen. Each month a recipe is selected which was made using egg . we the group members has to make it egg less For this month soft dinner rolls was the challenge.We has to make the soft dinner rolls without using egg.
Till date I didn't made bread with egg. So , it was easy for me. First , I thought of using Tangzhong to make these dinner rolls . As, I already posted two breads , I skipped that idea .
Finalized, using mashed potato instead of egg. It gives soft dinner rolls, I liked its texture. I made certain shapes of the dinner rolls.
All purpose flour – 2 cup
Mashed potato - 1 cup
Dry yeast – 1 tsp
Sugar – 2 tbs
Salt – ¾ tsp
Butter – 2 tbs
Water – ½ cup
Luke warm milk – ¼ cup
I pressure cooked a large potato to make a cup of mashed potato.
As I used dry yeast , I has to proof the yeast.
Heat the half cup of water till 110 * C or till Luke warm.
Add in the ½ tsp of sugar and the yeast , let it proof for 15 minutes.
In a bowl , add the flour , salt , sugar , butter and mashed potato , mix well.
Add in the proofed yeast and milk , mix well.
Knead with the hand till a soft and smooth dough is formed. It may takes about 10 – 15 minutes.
Keep this dough in a oiled bowl , cover with a plastic wrap and let it double for 2 hours or more.
Deflate and shape into different shapes as you desire.
Round Dinner Rolls :
Take a small part of the dough and roll into a round shape without any crack.Making this is simple. If making stuffed bun means , stuff the filling and shape.
Pumpkin rolls :
Same as the dinner rolls , make a cut vertically throughout the round on equal distance. Cut deeply or else it will disappear while baking.
Rosette / Kaiser Rolls :
This roll resembles the rose. Its making may seems difficult.
Take a small part of dough. Roll the dough with the palm of the both hands , it will roll into a log and lengthens on rolling.
By taking this log in the hands , put a knot by intersecting both the ends , a circle will form in the center.
Bring one end above the circle and another under the circle.
Secure the edges tightly.
Rosette shape is formed.
Clover / Muffin Roll :
It resembles the shape of the clover and is made using the muffin pan.
It is simple , just roll three equal sized balls , arrange them in the muffin cups.
Knot Rolls :
Roll the dough into a log as in Kaiser roll , intersect both the ends and bring the ends into the center.
Arrange the prepared rolls in the baking tray.
Let it double again.
Preheat the oven to 220 * C @ convection mode.
I always use milk and sugar to brush the bread. But this time used milk powder dissolved in little water . It gave the bread lovely color.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or till brown on top.
Let it cool.
Eggless dinner rolls are ready to serve.
