Friday Food for the Soul: Pull-Apart Garlic-Herb Buns.

These is my go to garlic bread/bun/dinner rolls recipe as an accompaniment to my continental (English bakes and gravies) menu.
Its easy to make and sooooo much tastier than the store bought garlic buns or dinner rolls.
Sorry couldn't take a picture of the garlic buns once they were outta this dish...
They just vanished in no time!
but next time I make a batch, I will definitely take better and more organised pictures.

So anyways... here is the recipe:

1 teaspoon dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp butter-melted
1 tsp salt
3 cups all purpose flour (maida)

For the glazing/topping:
3-4 cloves of garlic- crushed and chopped finely
3 tbsp melted butter
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
(I used chopped fresh tulsi leaves instead of dried basil- about 2 tbsp)
1/2 tsp sugar
a pinch of salt
1/2 tsp dried onion powder (optional- I use mine once in a while coz u don't get them here!!)

1- Combine the yeast, sugar and the warm water, keep aside for 10 minutes.
2- In the meanwhile combine all the ingredients of the topping and keep aside.
3- In a big bowl, take the flour and make a well in the centre.
4- Then add milk+salt +butter  and the now foaming yeast+sugar mixture in the centre.
5- Knead with a dough kneader or with your hands till the mixture comes together and leaves the side of the bowl.
6- Now make a kind of flattish loaf out of the kneaded flour ball.
7- Cut the loaf into small squares.
8- Dip each little square into the butter-topping mixture and arrange them in a pre-greased baking pan (leaving some space between them) Reserve some butter for later basting.
9- Cover with a plastic wrap or a moist cloth and keep in a warm place for it to rise and double up- approximately 1 hour.
10- Once its doubled up, put it in a preheated oven at about 180C and bake for 20-25 minutes till the top is nice and golden.
11- Once they are out of the oven, brush the top with the butter mixture and serve warm.

If you want cheesy Garlic buns....simple-
just sprinkle Parmesan cheese generously over the buns and then bake them!
