The eggless 100% whole wheat dinner roll isn't a complicated one and is also quick and easy to make. Yeast is an important aspect when making breads, so we have started by activating yeast by taking yeast in a small bowl, adding sugar which helps yeast activate, warm water and mix well and have rested it for 10 mins. When you see a frothy layer formed it indicates that the yeast is activated. Further, we have taken a big bowl, added plain flour to it. Added butter, which makes the dough softer and helps making the bread rolls tender.

We have added salt, activated yeast and knead into a soft pliable dough using warm water. You can use milk if you wish to. The dough will be sticky but, don’t worry just knead into a soft and pliable dough. As the dough is kneaded, it will continue to absorb some of the liquid and become less sticky so do not add too much flour or else you will get dense whole wheat bread rolls.

Shape the dough into a proper round using both your hands while tucking the edges at the bottom. Cover it with a damp muslin cloth and keep aside in a warm place for 20 minutes or till the dough increases in volume. If your kitchen is cold you can place your dough in the oven.

This recipe is what i was waiting for. Whole wheat bread. Everyone in my family loves bread and so do i. These bread rolls are nice and soft from outside and even from inside. Butter it nicely and its yumm. And the best part is i can have it without the guilt of having maida. Also the baking time is just 20 minutes. That''s definately a plus point, otherwise generally there is a lot of baking time in almost all the recipes that i have seen.
