  • For the dough:
  • Melt 2 tsps butter in 50 ml medium hot milk and keep aside.
  • Place 2 cups of flour in a large bowl (or first add 1.5 cups of flour and later adjust with remaining 1/2 cup flour), and stir in salt.
  • Make a well in the centre, and pour milk - butter mix and fermented yeast mixture. Knead into a dough.
  • Sprinkle 1 - 3 tbsps of reserved milk if required until you have a soft moist dough that can be handled well and soft.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface, and knead for at least 10 minutes.
  • Return to the bowl, cover with a wet towel (wet towel and dough should not touch each other) and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 to 1.5 hours.
  • For the filling:
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add chopped onion and fry until golden brown. Add finely chopped vegetables (or minced meat). Stir fry for 5 minutes on a low heat. Add soy sauce and mix well. Cover with a tight lid and cook on a medium to low heat for 10 minutes. Adjust salt to taste. Keep aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  • 2 nd stage:
  • Punch the dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; cover and let rest for 15 minutes.
  • Final stage
  • Divide the dough into 9 -11 sections and shape them into neat balls.
  • Now you can start shaping the Roses. Roll out each ball to about 4 inch diameter.
  • Brush a bit of butter on the circle of dough. Make 4 diagonal slits, leaving the centre intact.
  • Add your filling in the centre.
  • Take one of the sections and cover the side of the filling with it.
  • Take the opposite side's section and cover the other side of the filling with it.
  • Repeat with the two last sections.
  • Pinch the dough on the side to seal it (or use your creativity to make rose petals).
  • Repeat until all rose-rolls are ready.
  • Place the prepared rolls on a greased tray.
  • Pre-heat your oven to 180 C. Brush each rose gently with egg yolk mixed with a tsp of milk. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until tops are golden and rolls are ready and golden colour.
  • Remove and brush them with melted butter. Keep them covered until time of serving so they stay soft.
