Cute little pinwheel rolls with a mince filling. They look great and taste even better!

cups all purpose flour
1 tsp.
instant yeast
1/4 tsp.
baking powder
1 1/2 tsp.
1 tsp.
4 tbsp
oil plus 1 tbsp. butter
water and milk
(half and half)

First, sieve the flour and add the salt, baking powder, yeast, oil and butter. Heat the water/milk to lukewarm (very hot water will kill the yeast). Add the water gradually into the flour whilst kneading until you have a soft but firm dough. Knead the dough, pounding it as much as you can to give the buns a delicately soft texture. The more you knead the better the result.

Put the dough into a lightly-oiled spacious bowl and turn it over in the bowl once so that the little oil covers the dough all over. Cover the bowl with a damp warm towel and let the dough rise for about half an hour to 45 mins.

Once risen, punch down, and then knead it again for 2-3mins.

Roll out into a rectangular shape of less than quarter inch thickness. Then add your filling, in this case I've used my favorite mince filling HERE.

Whip some egg white with a tsp. of water, then drizzle all over the mince. Now roll your rectangle like a swiss roll. Place the whole roll on a greased baking tray, then let it sit for another half an hour until it rises again.

Brush with egg yolk and bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 10 minutes. Take the tray out, and using a very sharp knife slice the big roll to form smaller rolls. Put them back on the tray and bake again for about 5-10 minutes. This is to make sure the dough gets done all the way through, and also slicing when the roll is a bit more solid helps get a cleaner cut than if you slice the roll when the dough is still raw.

Serve and enjoy! :)

W/Salaam, best to make and bake it fresh, refrigerating without baking will make the dough yeasty. Otherwise bake half-way, allow them to cool, then wrap them well and freeze until needed. You can then finish off the baking before serving.

hey!... are you sure about baking on 180C for just 10 mins??

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes. After 10 minutes take the tray out and using a very sharp knife slice the big roll to form smaller rolls. Put them back on the tray and bake again for about another 5-10 minutes.

Slms…by using 3 cups flour how many rolls can we get?? and from each roll how many small rolls do we get after cutting from the large roll???????

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

W/Salaam, you can get about 15-20 rolls total but it depends on how thick or thin you slice them.

Yes you can use tandoori chicken masala.

perfect recipe...thanks FKF

so yamy thanx

Thank-you so much for the recipe! :) I tried making the mince rolls and they turned out ok. The only problem that I had was the mice meat mixture (a bit wet) ended up clumping and didn't allow the spiral design to show. Also when I cut the pieces they ended up being a bit a strange thin oval shape. Not sure what i am doing wrong :S

Thanks! Make sure the mince is dry next time. Also I have noticed a serrated knife cuts easier, or use a very very sharp knife to avoid the dough getting smooshed. Did you bake the bread before cutting the strips?

Jazakalla for your yummy recipes, I made this for ifthar today and my family loved it. Keep up your fantastic work.

Aoa how r u
I love your recipes ..

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Aa, is it possible to just have the dough in a circular shape,then add up the fillings and roll it nicely. After which you bake it as it is then cut it into shown pieces,and take it back to oven?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

You can although the ends will not be very neat.

Hey Fauzia, can you please share which oven are you using for baking? Is it gas oven or electric oven? and the one which comes with the stove?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Hi, I use an electric fan assisted oven with a stove top.

Aoa fauzia, should we freeze the rolls after cutting them and how long should we
Bake them for half done .

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

You can even bake them almost all the way, just cool and wrap them up then when ready to serve allow them to thaw and put them in a hot oven for a few minutes just to freshen them up. Do not freeze them raw.

I am going to use a stand mixer to prepare the dough. Kindly guide me about measurements/process.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

I usually knead by hand, measurements will remain the same but be careful not to add all the liquid in one go. Add gradually and use as much as needed to make a soft smooth dough.

nice nice

can i use microwave oven for baking?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Sorry I never cook/bake in the microwave so am not sure how the temp/time conversions will work out.
