PS (Please bear with the pics, the taste is what matters na, and we were  in hurry to these yummy rolls)

Ha… what should I say about these beauties, these are yummiest rolls I have ever had, it’s perfect with Tea or with pasta, and I usually make this with pasta for dinner. From a very long time I was searching for this kind of a recipe, I tried with already baked bread by spreading the garlic mix, then again with something else, but nothing worked until I got this recipe from a blog, I have modified a little bit according to my taste. This time when I go to Bangalore I am going to make this especially for my amma, she is vegan and will definitely love this. So here goes the recipe.

How to Make

First proof the yeast in the luke warm water with salt, sugar ,yeast and let it be for 5 minutes, until its proofed fully, then add the Maida, oil and mix well, make it into a smooth dough, and let it rise in a warm place by covering with a damp cheese cloth.

Meanwhile in a bowl take vegan butter, oregano, chilly flakes, and minced garlic, and mix well and keep it aside.

Once the dough is risen or doubled, mine took 45 minutes, just punch it down and kneed it into a smooth ball, and roll it using the rolling pin, roll it into round or rectangle of ½ inch thickness, add flour if the dough is sticky when rolling, once done spread the garlic spread just leaving ½ inch around the edges.

Then roll it from the end gently until to the other end, once it’s fully rolled, cut it into 6 equal portions.

Then place the cut side up rolls in a greased pan, and keep in warm place to let it rise, I keep mine for 45 minutes.

Once it’s risen, bake it in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown on top.


You can use the ordinary butter instead of vegan butter.

The flavors in the garlic spread is your choice, you add, minus or multiply and play with the flavors.

I used olive oil once instead of butter but it dint turn out that great.

If you don’t have vegan butter, you can use home made cashew butter or peanut butter, but I haven tried with these, so I cant guaranty the results.
