Garlic Rolls


I saw the recipe for Garlic Rolls on Suhaina’s blog and couldn’t resist trying it out.   I followed her recipe mostly but am posting my version to remind me of how lovely the rolls turned out.  We had these rolls instead of plain rolls with our pav bhaji.  The pav bhaji’s recipe was from Nayna’s blog.

Ingredients for 8 Rolls:

  • 500 gms Bread flour (I used  ready mixed bread-mix with added yeast)
  • 2-3 tablespoons of Olive oil
  • 350  mls of warm water
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds

For the Garlic butter:

  • 50 grams of butter
  • 3-4 cloves of finely grated garlic
  • a small bunch of fresh coriander


1. Add a tablespoon of Olive oil to the Bread mix with 350 mls of warm water.

2. Knead until you get a smooth dough.

3.  Transfer the dough into a clean dish and cover with a dish cloth.  Allow it to  rise for 40-45 minutes. The dough will double its initial size.


4.   Whilst the dough is rising make the garlic spread :  Mix the  butter and  the  finely grated garlic to it.    Add some coriander to the mixture and keep it at room temperature.

5.  After 45 minutes, mix the bread dough so that the air is knocked out.

6.   Divide the dough into 2 portions.

7.    Roll out the dough into a square of about half inch thick.


8. Spread the garlic spread on the rolled out dough.


9.    Roll in the rectangle dough to form a cylinder shape.


10.    Divide the roll into two equal parts.


11.   Now divide the 2 halves into 2 again giving you four pieces.


12.   Place the rolls with the cut side up in the greased pan.

13.  Repeat the same procedure for the remaining dough.


14.  Apply any remaining garlic butter to the rolls and sprinkle some sesame seeds .

15.  Cover the rolls for a further 20 minutes.  The rolls will raise again.

16.   Cook the rolls at a temperature of 180 degrees C.

17.    Bake the rolls for 20 – 25 minutes.

18.  Like Suhaina mentioned in her blog, the aroma of garlic bread filled the house and we all fell in love with the rolls.


19.   We had the hot Garlic Rolls with bhaji.   Recipe to follow soon.

  • Mina,
    Love the Garlic Roll recipe ~ looks very similar to the US Cinnamon Roll idea, but since I don’t have much of a sweet tooth this is much preferable.

    I’m a Brit living in the US. Since US bread mix uses a softer flour (not durum wheat like that available in England) would you suggest it would work better making bread dough from scratch?

    Thanks, looking forward to trying many of these recipes, your instructions are very clear and nicely illustrated ( ~ you’re making me hungry and its hard to get good Indian food here).

    I love cinnamon rolls too!!

    Making bread dough from scratch was in the original recipe – so it would certainly work.
