Eggless Whole Wheat Garlic Buns / Garlic Rolls - Step by Step Recipe

I am fond of the flavoured buns and rolls which we get in bakeries. When I saw these buns I quickly wanted to try it and so far I have made it thrice with different proportions of the flour. I always want to try my hands with wheat flour when it comes to buns/rolls - One such example is these savoury buns because it is the only chance I can experiment. Because I havent succeeded using wheat flour for cakes , atleast cookies I can say they are good.

Whole Wheat Garlic Rolls Recipe


Whole Wheat Garlic Rolls Recipe
Recipe source: The chef and her kitchen
Makes 6 medium sized rolls
    Ingredients:
    • Wheat Flour - 1 and 1/2 cup
    • Plain Flour - 1/2 cup
    • Warm Water- 3/4 cup
    • Milk - 2 tbsp (optional)
    • Active Dry Yeast - 1/2 tbsp
    • Salt - 1 tsp
    • Sugar - 1/2 tbsp
    • Olive Oil - 1/2 tbsp
    • Sesame seeds - 1 tbsp
    For Garlic Spread:
    • Salted butter, at room temperature - 2 tbsp
    • Minced garlic - 6 big cloves
    • Chopped coriander leaves - 1 tbsp
    • Green chillies - 1 finely chopped / paste



    Whole Wheat Garlic Rolls Recipe
    Method:
    Add warm water,milk,oil,sugar and salt in a wide bowl, add yeast to it and dissolve completely.Then add maida, wheat flour and knead it to a soft sticky dough.

    Whole Wheat Garlic Rolls Step1
    Keep the dough in a warm place(near your kitchen stove) undisturbed for 1 hr. Keep covered with a wet muslin cloth/plastic wrapper. By this time the dough would have raised well. Now knead it once again with 1/2 tsp of oil and spread it out using chapathi roller for about 1/2inch thickness to form a rectangle/square. Dust flour if needed.
    Whole Wheat Garlic Rolls Step2
    Prepare the garlic spread by mixing butter, coriander leaves and chilli paste. Now spread this garlic spread on one side of the rolled dough.Roll from one end to another gently and firmly.Reserve little spread for the topping.
    Whole Wheat Garlic Rolls Step3
    Now cut it into 2 halves. Then cut each halves into 3 rolls each so that you get 6 large rolls(I got a extra tiny one too:)). Brush it with little milk on top. Then spread the remaining garlic spread on top of the cut side and sprinkle sesame seeds on top of it.Now keep them arranged in a greased tin with cut side up.
    Whole Wheat Garlic Rolls Step4
    Now allow it to raise again for 30mins. Then preheat the oven for 180 deg C for 10mins.Keep the tin near the oven for good raising again, it will start sticking to each other.The first pic below is after 30mins, the second pic is after the preheating time. Bake it at 180 deg C for 25-30mins or until the buns starts browning like in the third pic below.
    Whole Wheat Garlic Rolls Step5

    Now pull them apart and enjoy every bite.These buns are very soft and has a very aromatic flavour which fills in your home with its flavour when its baking.

    Whole Wheat Garlic Rolls RecipeMy Notes:
    • Water quantity purely depends on the flour so adjust accordingly. Judge the dough such that the dough is slightly sticky.
    • You can add 1 tbsp yeast to make to raise even faster. You can even add 1tsp and allow it to raise for a longer time say 2-3 hours.
    • The spread can be your own choice, you can even try vegetable/paneer stuffing. You can use the same method for making basic buns too.
    • You can also replace the entire 2cups of flour with maida for a even more softer and bakery kind of bun. With full maida you will get a very softer bakery style buns.
    • The buns starts browning to golden brown only during the last 10-15mins so dont panic like me :) Check if the buns are done after 25 mins then proceed with the extra baking time.

    58. Hi Sharmilee

      A very yummy recipe. I have a microwave oven at home. What would be the baking time and temp in that, is it the same?

      ReplyDelete
    59. @Madhu : If you have convection mode then use the same temperature and timing, try that.

      ReplyDelete
    60. hello Shamilee,
      the recipe was great...i tried it and the rolls came out well...but i felt that the outer layer of bread was not very soft like of a regular bread..and was bit cheavy to eat....where i must have gone wrong?what made the bread more like elastic and not soft....?
      thanks,

      ReplyDelete
    61. @Anon: Not really sure without seeing the dough its hard to judge where it went wrong.Guess it was overbaked?!

      ReplyDelete
    62. hello,
      in the list of ingredients for making the dough ,there is addtion of 1/2 tbsp of olive oil...can use vegetable or sunflower oil...incase if olive oil is not there..
      thanks.

      ReplyDelete
    63. @Anon : Yes you can use cooking oil

      ReplyDelete

    66. Hi Sharmilee,

      I tried these buns last weekend and they turned out great. On popular demand, I will make these again this weekend with different stuffing. This was the first successful bread/buns recipe for me as I always mess up in some way or the other :). Of course I messed up with measurement in this case also but it still turned out great. Thanks a lot.

      1. If the dough has risen properly am sure the buns will turn soft....Keep it in a warm place to make it rise well

    71. Hi sharmi,

      I tried these buns yesterday n they came out so soft n yummy !

      I had been searching for this recipe which used wheat flour. My husband is not in favor of maida n was Googling it out. It was your recipe that made my long cherished "to bake" dream come true :) my husband was like "let's not get these buns from bakery anymore!" What's more encouraging than that :) I told him you owe it to Sharmispassion than to me :)

      Thank you so much Sharmi :)

    76. Hi Sharmi, tried the buns yesterday and they were simply amazing, although I made them with maida n not wheat flour. The buns were so soft n yummy that everyone at home loved it, especially the kids. they have asked me to make them once again, which I'll happily do so. Thank you sooo............much, I can't tell you how happy I am to know that now I can make them on a regular basis.
