Garlic Cheese bread Rolls

After long time I am back with my baking again.....but this was also in my draft from many thought of completing it (before i forgot the method)and posting it....I have made this bread rolls for the first has turned very nice....only thing is i have used cheddar cheese,,,,but next time i will use the mozzarella cheese,,which will given more taste to the rolls,,,,


For Dough:
Plain flour 2 cup
milk 1/2 cup
salt 1/2 tsp
sugar 2tsp
Fast action yeast 1tsp
milk powder 1TBSP
butter 20gm
Olive oil-2tbsp

For Filling:
Greated cheese 1/2 cup(I used cheddar)(I suggest to use mozzarella cheese)
Garlic cloves 4-5
Fresh Coriander chopped 3-4TBSP
pinch of salt

Mash the ingreadents of filling together and make a paste,keep aside.

Keep all the dough ingradients in the bread machine and prepare nice soft dough.

Punch it up to remove air bubbles, make 4-5 equal parts of the dough..take one portion and roll it,,(or you can also Roll it out into a big rectangle shape)cut in the middle spread over the cheese garlic on one layer..cover it with another layer again spread the paste on the top of the layer,,,like this make 3-4 layers and cover with last layer..Now make a roll and cut in to 2-3 small pieces.

Cover & rest for another 20 minutes.Bake it til light brown for 20 minutes or till done.(as i have used my bread mechine to bake ,,which has automated time setting for backing...

enjoy the bread rolls..with a cup of tea..........
