Serves : 4
  • 250g Bread flour

  • 50g Potatoes pureed/ mashed

  • 1 teaspoon instant active yeast

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 50g caster sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 egg yolk for brushing

  • 80 ml milk

  • 30g soft unsalted butter

  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds optional

  • 1/2 teaspoon oil


  • In a bowl add flour, make 3 wells
  • Add yeast , salt and sugar in it respectively. Gently mix everything well
  • Now add milk, egg and potato puree. Potatoes should be well mashed and lump free
  • Now mix well until dough comes together
  • Add butter and knead into very soft dough. Even if dough is sticky it's ok, do not add flour
  • Coat a bowl with oil. Transfer the dough into the greased bowl. Cover and rest in warm place for 90 minutes
  • The dough would have doubled in size. Gently punch the air
  • Now generously sprinkle flour on surface. Transfer the flour and knead well for 3-4 minutes. If dough is sticking to surface then add more flour. Note - the dough has to be very soft so be careful while adding flour
  • Line baking tray with parchment paper. Divide dough into equal portions
  • Shape them into round/ oval and place them on baking tray leaving gap between them. Cover and rest aside for 45 minutes
  • Preheat oven to 180. The dough would have again expanded. Now do egg yolks wash on top of each roll. Alternatively you can do milk wash too
  • I have sprinkled sesame seeds on top. This is optional
  • Bake for 18-22 min until it is evenly golden brown on top
  • Allow to rest for 15 minutes.
  • Serve warm with butter or gravy as desired. These are soft Spongy delicious rolls
