Garlic Pull apart Rolls

I have seen these rolls in so many blogs and simply fell in love with the shape they take after baking. So I thought of trying this one day. My daughter liked this so much, that I made this thrice and every time she was enjoying till the last bite :)

With the onset of winter, we all like to have something hot and fresh and this one turns out to be a perfect evening snack. While these are baking in the oven, the house is filled with the aroma of garlic and bread and they are irresistible.

This one is quite a tempting recipe, that I like to make them again and again. I used all the dried herbs which I had in my pantry for the spread and they tasted awesome and was a treat for 4 out of my 5 senses, sight, smell, feel and taste :-)

So here is the recipe of delicious and tasty rolls.

Recipe adapted from Nags

  1. All purpose flour- 1 ½ cups
  2. Yeast ½ tbsp
  3. Warm water- ½ cup
  4. Salt- a pinch
  5. Sugar- 1tbsp
  6. Olive Oil- 1tbsp
For Garlic spread
  1. Butter- 6tbsp
  2. Salt- as required
  3. Garlic (crushed and Chopped)- 3tbsp
  4. Dried herb (Thyme and Dill)- 1tbsp
  5. Coriander Leaves (Chopped)- 2tbsp
Spreading the garlic paste and rolling from one end

  1. Make the garlic spread by mixing all the required ingredients for the spread and keep it aside.
  2. Take 1 tbsp of warm water in a bowl and add the yeast (I used dry yeast). Let it rest for some 5 minutes and mix well.
  3. Mix flour, salt, sugar,olive oil and dissolved yeast together in a bowl till it forms a sticky dough.
  4. Add oil to finger tips and knead well. Wrap it in a cling film or a damp cloth till it doubles in size. I kept it for 1hour.
  5. Meanwhile grease the baking pan in which you are going to bake the rolls.
  6. After resting for 1 hour knock down the air in the dough by kneading well and divide the dough into two equal portions.
  7. Spread one portion of the divided dough on a floured surface in the shape of circle. Apply more flour if the dough is sticky.
  8. Spread half of the garlic spread with the help of a spoon. Roll from one end firmly and cut into 4 or 5 equal parts.
  9. Place the rolls with the cut side up in the greased pans.
  10. Repeat the same procedure for the remaining dough and place them in the greased pan.
  11. Apply the remaining garlic spread and little milk on top of the rolls.
  12. Let it sit for another 20 minutes, meanwhile pre heat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  13. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Meanwhile the house will be filled with the aroma of garlic bread.
  14. These will be soft and moist and serve hot.

  • We must be careful while adding warm water. It depends upon the quality of the dough. Sometimes we require more water and sometimes less.
  • While rolling, we must take care that it should be very firm otherwise it will loosen up while baking. Mine was like that.
