Book fairs are a magical place! And many a times its like a treasure hunt for me.I can't count the number of times I have found good cookbooks that I usually don't see online. One such book is the Potato Cookbook.
I treasure this cookbook and many times, I pick it up just to drool over the dishes!!! Then when our blogging marathon group was discussing about the themes for the mega marathon , it was hinted to be a baking themed one.And this happened like a year ago.And that was just after I had got this cookbook.
Even though the theme was not exactly finalized, I decided to bake something from my treasured book and thus was born these rolls....
Preparation time- 30 minutes
Proofing time - 1 hour
Baking time -10 minutes
Yields- 6 rolls
[Read the notes before you proceed :) ]
All purpose flour - 1 cup
Instant yeast- 1/2 teaspoon
Honey- 1/2 teaspoon
Sweet potato- 1 / mashed sweet potato -1/2 cup
Cumin seeds- 1 teaspoon
Milk-scant 1/2 cup
Extra flour for dusting while kneading
Honey and toasted cumin seeds to serve
Pressure cook the sweet potato .Peel and mash well.Keep aside. Mix honey in milk and keep aside
In a large bowl sift flour and add yeast and cumin seeds. Mix well.
Add milk+honey mixture to the flour and mix everything together. The dough will be very sticky. Turn it into the work surface after sprinkling a lot of flour and knead well for 5 minutes till the dough is smooth.
Once the dough is smooth ,keep it an oiled vessel , cover with a damp cloth and keep aside for 30 minutes.
After the dough doubles / 30 minutes, turn it onto the work surface and punch out the air. Divide into 6 equal parts.
Roll into a ball and place on a greased baking tray and cover with a damp cloth and set aside for 30 minutes.
The balls would have doubled after 30 minutes. Bake in a pre heated oven at 220 degrees for 10 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack.
Drizzle honey and roasted cumin before serving
- The rolls did not turn out brown but they were baked. The recipe in the book did not mention brushing the rolls with a milk / egg wash and so I skipped it. Next time, I will be giving a milk wash before baking.
- The rolls very very mildly sweet.
- Next time I will add a pinch of salt to the dough.
- If serving the next day, warm it lightly and serve with honey / chocolate sauce drizzled over the rolls.
The rolls were very soft and the kids had it with chocolate sauce...
