Garlic Knots

After April month swap post "Hong Kong Noodle Soup", here comes my second month participation in an interesting event Food Bloggers Recipe Swap hosted by Amber Dawn. For May month, I was paired with an amazing blogger Sapana who blogs at cookingwithsapana.com. The concept of the theme was to select one recipe from my partner's page and recreate the recipe. It took so much time for me to choose one recipe from her page while all her recipes looked so inviting and tempting. Finally tried these beautiful baked garlic knots which was a super hit in my place. These garlic knots are perfect with hot tea and also, can be served as breakfast along with salsa, jam or sauce. The actual recipe calls for the parsley, but I have replaced it with coriander leaves in garlic butter. Thank you Sapana for sharing such a delicious baked snack.

Ingredients :

11/2 Cups All purpose flour / Maida + extra for dusting 
1 Tsp Sugar

For Garlic Butter :

4 Tbsp Butter, melted 
1/4 Cup Coriander leaves, finely chopped ( Actual recipe calls for Parsley ) 
4 - 5 Garlic cloves, minced

Method :

In a large bowl, mix all purpose flour, yeast, sugar and salt. 

Make a well in the center of it and add olive oil followed by warm water. 

Combine together to form a dough and knead it for about 10 minutes. 

Place it in an oiled bowl and let it rise for an hour or until it doubles in size. 

Now knead the dough again for about 5 minutes and divide into 9 equal parts. 

Roll it into long tubes like and make a knot by folding over and under. 

Arrange the prepared knots in a baking tray and keep it aside for 10 minutes. 

Now bake it for 10 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 180 degree C. 

Meanwhile, prepare garlic butter by mixing all the ingredients given in "For Garlic Butter" and keep aside. 

Remove the knots from the oven and brush with garlic butter. 

Bake it again for 5 minutes and remove from the oven. 

Serve warm.
