SunDried Tomato and Parmesan Gramflour Dinner Rolls/Buns/Bread

It's half term holidays for my kids and it's 1 week long. Weather is also not very great, it's good one day and disappointment another. We needed some activities to do, so why not bake something with kids. Specially when they are always around while you are cooking/baking.

Oh Yes!!!! My kids are like that. They will be busy but as soon as you step into the kitchen, they just appear in there somehow..... There starts the questioning and ideas from them for baking. So this time I asked them to help me while baking these rolls. They were running grabbing utensils, flour, containers and were super proud on themselves for being great helpers of Mum :) I love them to bits. The smile on their faces, while checking the bake from their chairs was the best thing.

The aroma in the house while the gramflour bread was baking, I can't describe but imagine friends, It's awesome. I wish I could let my readers to smell the aroma in this post. As soon as the Dinner Rolls/Buns/Bread got cool down, half of them were finished. They tasted awesome, and I'm gonna try them with different herbs and spices again.

I 'm sure of you gonna try this, won't you????? Don't forget to comment below. Until next time.......Happy Cooking Friends, Saumya


Wheat Flour                                      - 1/2 cup + 2 tblspoon for kneading
Chickpea Flour / Gram Flour           - 1/2 cup
Yeast                                                 - 1 tspoon
Sugar                                                 - 1 tblspoon
Salt                                                    - 1 tspoon / To taste
Chilli Powder                                    - 1 tspoon / To taste
Dry/Powder sun dried tomato           - 2 tblspoon
Dried Parmesan Cheese                    - 2 tblspoon (Check the meat free aisle for veg version of this
                                                                              or you can use any other cheese of your choice)
Dried Garlic Flakes                           - 1 tspoon
Dried Onion Flakes                           - 2 tblspoon (I used fried ones, Ive at home)
Water                                                 - 1/2 cup lukewarm
Oil                                                      - 2 tblspoon (Flora Healthy Light oil)
Seeds                                                  - to sprinkle on top , I used sesame seeds

For Mini loaf filling:
Dough pieces                                     - 3 parts
Paneer / Cottage Cheese                    - 2 tblspoon
Chilli Sauce                                       - 1 tblspoon


For this bread dough, I used my stand mixer with dough hook.
Mix all the dry ingredients in the mixer bowl except Oil, Water and Seeds.

Start the mixer with low speed and Add the oil into it.
Start adding the water little by little to form the dough.
Once all ingredients are combined, change the mixer to high speed and run for 2 minutes to activate the gluten in the flour.

Tip the dough on to the lightly floured surface and knead for about 2 more minutes.
Place the dough into the greased mixer bowl, spray some oil on the dough as well to avoid any layer forming over it.

Keep the dough to rise for about an hour (in the hot weather) or two (in cold weather).
My dough took 1 hour cause it was pretty warm day.

Punch down the dough and knead again on lightly floured surface.
Roll it down to a log shape. Cut the same size dough pieces out of the dough log.

I made different shapes ( 3 round buns, 3 pleated dinner rolls, 4 knots) and one mini loaf stuffed with Paneer for my daughter. Keep all the shaped buns into greased baking tray.

For Paneer stuffed mini Loaf:

Join 3 parts of the dough pieces, pat it with your hands making a square of  4*4.
Spread the chilli sauce on the dough square and sprinkle the Paneer crumbs.

Now roll the square into a log, sealing the sides and end of the dough square.
Place it in a mini loaf pan, keeping the sealed side down.

Let dinner rolls/buns/bread rise again, meanwhile preheat the oven to 190c.
Once the oven is preheated the dinner rolls/buns/bread will also has had their second rise.
Sprinkle some Sesame seeds/Poppy seeds on top.

Keep a water filled oven safe dish to keep the crust soft while baking the dinner rolls/buns/bread.
Bake the dinner rolls in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the top turns golden.
Let the dinner rolls/buns/bread cool down before serving. They taste best when warm.

These dinner rolls/buns/bread slices are good to serve anytime in breakfast, evening tea or after school snack.. I'm sure your family will also like them.
