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.

    Bread Rolls dough

    1. To make the dough for whole wheat masala bread rolls, in a small bowl, take yeast. We are using dry yeast for the French bread rolls. Instant dry yeast can be added straight to dry ingredients and doesn’t require any proofing. Active dry yeast has slightly bigger size of granule and needs to be hydrated before being used in the recipe.
    2. Add 3 tbsp of warm water in the bowl. Before pouring the water, dip your finger in water to check if it’s lukewarm or no. Water that's too hot can damage or kill the yeast.
    3. Mix well.
    4. Cover it with a lid and keep aside for 10 minutes. The rising time will vary as per the climatic conditions.
    5. After 10 minutes, open the lid and you can see a frothy layer on top which indicates our yeast has been activated and is ready to use. If you don’t see a creamy frothy layer then discard the yeast and start over again.
    6. For preparing the dough for Homemade masala whole wheat bread rolls, in a deep bowl take whole wheat flour. Take a big bowl as the dough will rise on resting and you would want to prevent it from overflowing.
    7. Add butter. Butter enriches the dough and makes softer & more tender bread rolls.
    8. Add salt.
    9. Add yeast-sugar mixture.
    10. Mix well and gradually add approx. ¾ cup of warm water. Instead of water, you can make use of milk to make softer wheat bread rolls.
    11. The dough will be sticky but, don’t worry just knead into a soft and pliable dough. As the dough is kneaded, it will continue to absorb some of the liquid and become less sticky so do not add too much flour or else you will get dense bread rolls.
    12. Shape the dough into a proper round using both your hands while tucking the edges at the bottom. Cover it with a damp muslin cloth and keep aside in a warm place for 20 minutes or till the dough increases in volume. If your kitchen is cold you can place your dough in the oven.
    13. After 20 minutes, you will notice the dough has risen and looks like this.
    14. Add the prepared masala.
    15. Knead very well and whole wheat masala bread rolls are ready!
    16. Lightly punch down the dough and divide the masala dinner rolls dough into 9 equal portions.

    How to make masala bread rolls

    3. Place it on the greased baking tray. Space the rolls about ½ to 1 inch apart so the bread rolls do not stick to each other after rising.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. Q. Can i omit the sugar in whole wheat masala bread rolls? The sugar is added to activate the yeast. Without sugar the yeast wont bloom. Thus, you cannot omit the sugar. 
    2. Q. I used dry yeast and followed the same method to bloom the yeast. But my yeast did not bloom, there was no froth? Yeast needs lukewarm water, sugar and warm spot to activate. Make sure you use warm water and not hot water. Mix well after water is added and immediately cover and keep it in a warm spot. After the yeast is bloomed handle it gently, do not shake the yeast bowl vigorously or else it will kill the aeration.

    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.
