- Ready In : 2:10 h
- 330g plain flour
- 1⁄2 tsp salt
- 5g instant dry yeast
- 1⁄2 tsp sugar
- 20ml vegetable oil
- 355ml lukewarm water
In a bowl combine all the ingredients and add 90% of the water. Mix for about 10 minutes until the dough reaches full dough consistency. Transfer the dough to a slightly oiled container and cover with plastic until it is doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Place the dough on a oured counter. Divide the dough into sections of about 85g each, and let them rest for 15 minutes.
Shape the rolls into 12 - 14 balls. Flatten each roll with your at hand. Make an indent in the middle of the flattened dough with the side of your hand and fold in half.
Place the roll on a oured counter with open side down. Twist the ends with your fingers to make a small twisted point.
Cover with tea towel and leave for 30 minutes to proof.
Preheat the oven to 260°C.
Place the proofed rolls on parchment paper on a peel, with open side up, and brush with milk. Bake for 13-15 minutes until light brown.
