Eggless Lion House Rolls

This is the other recipe provided by Swathi for this month's Baking Partners Group Challenge. She provided the recipe with eggs and I converted it to an eggless recipe by substituting the egg with curd and baking soda mixture. The recipe also used milk powder and water which I substituted with milk. The dough was very nice to work with. It was so soft and could be shaped easily. It raised very well and the rolls were super soft and delicious. This was a beautiful challenge and I loved it a lot.
