Delicious soft potato rolls great for anytime.How was your weekend? I celebrated father’s day by calling my dad in India. He is my hero, friend and everything. My hubby spent his father’s day with two little ones, taking them to nearby park for feeding ducks and to the playground. His morning started with kisses from little ones and happy father’s day wish. While he was outing with kids, I made this delicious Amish potato rolls in my new Le Creuset Dutch oven
If you are a cooking or baking enthusiast like me, new pots and pan or baking pans can make you happy. If you can get possession of a Le Creuset Dutch oven, then your joy is doubled, isn’t that true? Yes that was happened to me. I love Le Creuset Dutch oven because they make perfect sourdough bread. Whenever I want to make artisanal crusted bread I need Dutch oven. My grandma used to cook many festival recipes in traditional bronze vessel called “Uruli”, because it can withstand as well as maintain heat for a longtime. If you need a slow cooking for long time at a high temperature cooking it is possible with a Dutch oven. Yes when I made these traditional sundried cassva/yucca fitters I used Dutch oven to heat a liquid cassava starch to thicken.
So trust me I was flying high when Le Creuset gave me a 3.5 quarts Dutch oven for review and also one for a lucky reader. He or she can choose the color of choice. It cost around $180. My 6 year old choose her favorite blue color for the pan.
It is really convenient one, and I want to try several recipes, yes baking and cooking on the same pot.
First I made a traditional vegetable biriyani from Tamil Nadu, South Indian State, India. Since rice is staple in our cooking. I will post the detailed recipe on coming post. Next is my favorite part bread baking? I was planning to make Amish potato dinner rolls for long time. Decide to try it my newly owned Dutch oven.
These potato rolls are easy to make, you need only a cup of mashed potato. Yes Amish ladies tuck their mashed potatoes to bread rolls to give them a yummy softness – no matter how long they sit on the dinner table, or how often they’re warmed over. I used instant potato flakes to make this bread. First make dough with flour, yeast, mashed potato, egg, milk, butter, sugar and salt. Then allow doing first fermentation. While your dough is rising, brush the sides and bottom part of Dutch oven to give a nice coat of butter. Then once dough is doubled divide and roll it into small balls and dip them into the melted butter and arrange beautifully. Then close and set aside for the next doubling; once it is finished bake the rolls with close lid for some time. Remove the lid and bake for some more to get perfect golden colored rolls. Once done, brush it with slightly more butter, yes more butter means merrier.
