Sausage rolls - A childhood Favorite

Sausage Rolls, one of my childhood favorites (I still love it!). I decided to bake it at home by using the same recipe of whole wheat garlic pull-apart rolls. And the result is what you see in the below pics..

Though I used both atta and maida, you can use just the maida for the base.....

Recipe Adapted from Easycooking

Whole Wheat Flour/Atta - 1 cup
All-purpose Flour/Maida - 1 cup
Lukewarm water - 1 cup
Dry yeast - 1 tsp
Sugar - 2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Olive Oil - 2 tsp

  • Mix together warm water,sugar,salt and yeast and keep aside for 5-10 minutes to froth.
  • In a bowl, add atta and maida. Pour in the yeast mixture along with olive oil, little at a time and knead the dough to form a smooth dough. (You may not require the entire quantity so add as required)
  • Knead the dough for 5-7 minutes or till the dough becomes smooth and elastic. (Add flour a tsp or two if you feel the dough is too sticky).
  • Coat the bowl with some olive oil and place the dough in it and smear oil around the dough.Cover the bowl with a damp towel and let the dough rise to double its size in a warm place for 45 - 60 mins.
  • Grease a baking tray with some oil and keep aside.
  • Punch down the dough and knead for 2-3 minutes. Divide the dough into six or eight balls and knead.
  • Dust your work space with some flour and roll each into a rough rectangle. 
  • Keep sausage in each rolls and wrap around the sausage. Place it in the baking tray and cover. Allow the rolls to rise for 30-45 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Bake the rolls for 20-25 minutes or till the top portion of the dough becomes golden and the bread sounds hollow when tapped.
  • Brush the top of the rolls with softened butter immediately after removing from the oven.
