Dough Ball is a very, very soft bun-like snack that tastes awesome when served piping hot with herbed butter. A good amount of milk powder and butter is used in the dough to give the Dough Ball this notably soft texture.

Once baked, these soft Dough Balls are brushed with a mixture of olive oil, herbs and spices, which not only boosts the flavour of the bread but also keeps the top layer moist and prevents it from hardening.

Although you can serve it later, the Dough Balls taste best when served hot and fresh. Serve them with soup at your next party and watch smiles of contentment bloom on your guests’ faces!
