Today, mood was focus on making minced meat rolls … somehow it’s very therapeutic when the baking mood strikes.
Before that the first time I made the rolls was using cornbeef and it was fantastic …. my kids and niece rave about it. But today I decided to change the fillings … instead of cornbeef, I use minced meat instead. Verdict? …. Superlicious! 🙂
Here’s the recipe for the cornbeef rolls and if you want to use minced meat, you just need to substitute it plus add about 2-3 tbsp of curry powder when cooking the fillings. Oh and if you use minced meat don’t use the Chinese parsley and onion leaves, instead use coriander leaves. Coriander works great when cooking meat with curry powder.
Ingredients for the dough :
250g bread flour
20g milk powder
6 g instant dried yeast (1 1/2 teaspoons)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon bread softener or bread improver
2 egg yolks
130 ml fresh milk
Method for the dough :
Add in all the ingredients except for the butter. Mix thorougly till it becomes a dough. Then add in the butter, and continue to knead the dough til it becomes soft. Put the dough into a container, cover with a wet towel and leave it for about 1 hour in a warm room temperature for it to rise to double the size.
Once it has risen, punch the dough to let our the air. Split it into 2 and knead both doughs for a while before rolling it into a rectangular shape.
On top of the rectangular dough, spread the filling evenly and then roll it like making a swissroll. After that, slice into pieces. Put the rolls into the muffin baking tin and bake for about 15-20 mins at 190 degree Celsius.
