Priya's Cheese-filled spinach rolls
They came out SOOOOOOOOOOO good. I made a pizza-type tomato sauce for dipping and it became a whole meal. Warning though... they are NOT that good room-temp or cold. The cheese really needs to be gooey.
2 cups Whole wheat flour
1 cup Rolled oats
1/4 cup Spinach puree
1/4 cup Olive oil
2 tbsp Active dry yeast (yes, you use 2 tablespoons because of the heavier flour and the oats)
1 tsp Sugar
1 tbsp Salt
1 tsp Red chilly flakes
1 tbsp Flax seeds
1 tsp Dry parsley leaves
1/4 tsp Pepper powder
8 pieces Babybel cheese or any other cheese of your choice (I used baby Gouda)
All purpose flour for dusting
Combine the oats, whole wheat flour, red chilly flakes, flax seeds,dry parsley leaves, pepper powder in a large bowl..meanwhile in a cup of lukewarm water, add the active dry yeast, sugar and salt and let this mixture sit for 5 minutes, to get a foamy yeast...Add this foamy yeast ,olive oil and spinach puree to the flour and spice mixture and knead as dough until you get a soft and smooth dough..arrange this soft dough in a greased bowl and keep this bowl in a warm place for an hour with lid closed until the dough double their volume..
Preheat the oven to 350f..After an hour, knead the dough,dust with all purpose flour and divide them 8 medium sized balls...knead the balls one by one, flatten them with ur palms, place a babybel cheese ,bring the edges together and roll them as round buns, arrange the cheese stuffed buns over a baking sheet lined over a baking tray..bake these cheese stuffed buns for 25-30minutes until the crust turns golden brown..
