Cheese Coriander Garlic Pull apart Rolls

Baking is addictive!! Period. Its the time when I bake I just enjoy myself the most. It is the aroma and the technique that I love about baking. These pull apart rolls were in my to do list for a long time and today I finally took it from my favourites list to my oven.

A cup of soup with these rolls is all I relished alone in my lunch. These were soft, cheesy and the smell of garlic with butter was heavenly. 

Every nook and corner of my house was filled with the aroma that I went crazy and could not wait longer to bite into them.

I took the recipe from Padhu's Kitchen. Her recipe was just superb Easy to understand and was very very tasty. Unlike her recipe I got 9 rolls instead of 4 rolls as mentioned by her.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes (excluding the resting time)
Cooking Time: 20 - 25 minutes
Yields: 9 rolls
Recipe Source:

What would you need:

For the bread:

  1. All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cups
  2. Luke warm water - 1/2 cup
  3. Instant yeast - 1/2 tbsp
  4. Sugar - 1 tbsp
  5. Salt - 1/2 tsp
  6. Oil - 1 1/2 tbsp (I used Olive Oil. You could use any refined oil. Please avoid mustard/ coconut/ gingelly oil)
  7. Cheese - 1/2 cup (grated)
Garlic Coriander Spread:
  1. Butter - 1/2 cup
  2. Coriander - a bunch (finely chopped)
  3. Garlic - 4 pods (grated)
How to go about it:

Proofing the yeast:
  1. Take half cup of water. Add 1/4 tsp sugar and sprinkle the yeast. Give it a good mix and keep it in a dark place (oven or a dark corner of your house) for about 10 minutes.
  2. The yeast would bloom and bubble up rapidly. Keep this ready.

Garlic Coriander Spread:
  1. Beat the butter, coriander and garlic together and keep aside.
The dough:

  1. In a bowl, add the flour, salt, sugar and mix.
  2. Slowly add the yeast water to the flour and start bringing it together. As you start mixing the dough will come together. 
  3. Add the oil in parts until you get a smooth, non - sticky dough. When you put your finger inside the dough, it will bounce back to its original shape. This says the dough is ready.
  4. Place the dough in a bowl and cover. Keep this for 45 - 50 minutes for the first rise.
  5. After the first rise, the dough would have doubled in its size. Punch the air out of the dough and roll it out on your working surface (into a rectangle).
  6. Spread the butter spread evenly and sprinkle the grated cheese on top of it. 
  7. Now roll this set up and cut about 8 - 9 rolls out of this. 
  8. Arrange them on a greased & dusted baking dish. 
  9. Again cover the dish and let it rest for another 20 minutes.
  10. In the last 10 minutes of the resting period, pre - heat the oven at 200 degress Celsius for 10 minutes.
  11. Once the oven is pre heated, set the temperature to 180 degree celsius and bake the rolls for about 20 - 25 minutes or until the top of the rolls are nice and brown.
