Whole wheat garlic egg version.

Garlic rolls is one of my most popular post here in this space. I make this often, my daughter just loves it. This one is made with whole wheat flour.....since I make this often I just tried it with wheat flour and though it is not as soft as made with all purpose flour it is soft enough....The idea is to make it healthy with wheat flour....I try to incorporate it in everyday cooking as much as I can....I thought I will share this today. Do check out here for the original post which I had posted long back. 

Ingredients for the dough:
Whole wheat flour: 1 1/2 cups.
Warm water: 1/2 cup.
Instant yeast: 1/2 tsp.
Salt: 1/2 tsp.
Sugar: 1 tbsp.
Olive oil/butter/ghee: 1-2 tsp.
Sesame seeds:  To sprinkle (optional).

To make garlic spread:
Salted butter: 5 to 6 tbsp. (if not using salted butter add 1/2 tsp salt).
Cilantro/Coriander leaves chopped: 2 tbsp.
Minced/garlic: 3 to 4 cloves.
Grated carrot: 1 (optional I used carrots in my original post)
*This can be stored in the chill tray for up to a week.
*Can be used to spread on breads before toasting them or on freshly baked naan, tandoor roti, Indian flat bread, or buns.

Baking time:
180 degree C, 25 to 30 min.

#The quantity of water depends on the brand of flour used, add water accordingly.
# I add 1 tsp yeast for a quick rise. You can reduce the quantity of yeast(say 1/2 tsp) and let it rise slowly too.

1. Mix everything together with the warm water (except the oil) and bring it into a smooth dough. ( guessed right no need to ferment yeast separately.) Then add oil to your finger tips and knead until the dough springs back when you press with your finger.

2. Cover with a wet towel and keep in a warm place for 35 to 40 will double its initial size. Bring 50 gm salted butter to room temperature. In the meantime make the garlic spread by mixing all the ingredients and keep aside.

3. Grease a baking dish and keep aside. Knock down the air in the dough and and divided the dough into 2 equal parts and roll the dough into 1/2 inch thickness using a rolling pin; apply flour to prevent sticking. Spread about 2 tbsp garlic spread on top and roll it firmly.

4. Cut into 4 equal parts and place them (cut side up) on the greased dish. Repeat the same procedure for the remaining dough. Brush a little milk on the rolls and add the remaining garlic spread on top. Again cover it with a wet cloth and keep for another 20 min........Preheat oven the oven to 180 degree C and bake for 25-30 min or until the kitchen is filled with the aroma of roasted garlic and bread.

The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…
