Eggless Sweet Rose Rolls

Yesterday I saw these beautiful stuffed bread rolls on facebook. One of my friends on face book shared this. I at once visited the blog for the recipe. The blog is Fauzia's Kitchen Fun and the recipe was wonderful. Though my rose rolls are not as cute as Fauzia's, they are still pretty. I used a sweet coconut and mawa filling and made the rolls eggless. They were very soft and the filling complimented the roll very well.

Recipe Adapted From Fauzia's Blog

3. Make lemon sized balls out of it.

Preparing the Rolls:
1. Knock the air out of the dough.
2. Pat it into a circle on your counter.
3. Divide it into 8 equal parts.
4. Roll each ball into a ball.
5. Roll out the ball into a 10cm disc.
6. Make 4 cuts on the disc. Place the filling in the centre.
7. Make the rose as shown in the picture. Pinch ends so that they don't open while baking. 
8. Arrange them on a greased baking tray and keep it aside for 15-20minutes.
9. Preheat oven to 175C.
10. Brush the rolls with milk and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
