Pull apart Dinner Rolls

  1. Bread flour - 3 cups( if you don't have bread flour use all purpose flour/maida)
  2. Yeast - 3 tsp
  3. Warm water - 1/4 cup
  4. Warm Milk - 1 and 1/4 cup
  5. Butter - 3 tbsp
  6. Sugar - 3 tbsp
  7. salt - 3/4 tsp

Warm the milk and add the butter to it so that the butter melts.Keep this aside.
Add the sugar and yeast to the warm water and mix well, keep aside until yeast is bubbly.
Sift the salt and flour together and add to a bowl.
Pour in the yeast mixture and mix with a spoon.
Pour in the milk mixture and mix well.The mixture will be sticky, but dont add in more flour unless it is absolutely necessary.
Sprinkle some flour on the kneading surface and scrape the dough onto it.
Apply flour to your hands and knead the mixture to a soft elastic dough (5-8 minutes).
It is okay for the mass to be slightly sticky.
Keep this dough in an oiled bowl and cover it with a plastic wrap or damp towel.
Let this rest in a warm place until doubled(about 1.5 hours)
Turn out this dough on a floured surface and roll it out into a square.
Divide it into 12 pieces(cut with a knife)
Shape them into rolls or rounds, they dont have to be perfect shaped.
Take the tray that you will use to bake the rolls in and place each roll about an inch apart.
Cover with damp towel and keep aside for another 45 minutes to raise.
Bake them in a pre heated 350F oven for 20-30 min until golden brown.
Before the last 5 minutes brush the top of the rolls with melted butter or egg-wash(egg white beaten with 1 tbsp of water - this helps give it the shine)
serve warm with butter.
