Here is a tasty alternative that will make you bid adieu to maida based breads!

Perked up with a peppy mix of herbs, spice powders and onions, the Whole Wheat Masala Bread Roll is a super tasty accompaniment to tea .

The refreshing aroma and cheery taste of coriander dominates this masaledar bread, which tastes best when had immediately after baking. We suggest having just one bread roll, occasionally.

Excellent and simple recipe. Came out very well except that quantity went wrong though I followed the recipe perfectly. The buns after initial rising didn''t come out as large and soft after baking. I must have goofed up somewhere.

Too good especially as it is made without the use of maida and sugar - both the ingredients which are not allowed for a diabetic. The baking time is also not much so I am sure of making these bread rolls more often. Thanks for the recipe.
