Coriander Dinner Rolls

I love the freshly baked buns/rolls served as entree in many restaurants.Tried creating the restaurant experience and baked coriander dinner rolls as an accompaniment to my mushroom soup.

Coriander Dinner Rolls

2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil

3.Wrap it and allow it to rise for 40~45 mins. After 40 mins the dough will become double its size.

4. Make the coriander spread by mixing the soft butter and the chopped fresh coriander.
5. Knock down the air in the dough and divide the dough into 4 equal portions. Take one part of the dough and roll it using a rolling pin. Apply flour to prevent sticking. Spread the coriander spread on the rolled out dough and roll to form a cylinder shape.
