You will need:
5 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup milk powder
2 cups luke-warm water
1 heaped tsp instant Yeast
2 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp butter
Some extra flour for sprinkling.

Method:
Making the dough…
Empty out some flour in a mixing bowl.
Using a spoon or whisk, aerate the flour by whisking it.

Now measure out 5 level cupfuls of the aerated flour in another large mixing bowl.
image
image
Add the salt, sugar, yeast, butter and milk powder to the measured flour.
image
Add the 2 cups of Luke warm water.
image
Using a wooden spoon, slowly bring the dough together.
image
At this stage the dough will look rough n shaggy.

image
Sprinkle some flour on top of dough…
image
and flip dough onto work surface.
image
Folding the dough…
Pick up top corners of dough,
image
and fold to meet bottom corners.
image
Using palm of your hand gently push dough back.
image
Give a 90 degree turn to the dough, so that the seam faces left. Repeat this process folding
image
and pushing dough for the next 4-5 minutes.
image
Now mid-way cover dough and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
image
Once again, fold and push dough for another 4-5 minutes, till it resembles a smooth ball.
image
Grease a mixing bowl.
image
Transfer dough to the bowl, cover with plastic wrap.
image
Allow to rise for 1 hour or till it more than doubles in volume.
image
Shaping and proofing the dough…
Once the dough doubles, transfer dough to a lightly floured surface.
image
Lightly pat with fingers and flatten.
image
At this stage, spread a liberal layer of garlic herb butter and crunchy fried onions (you can use ready fried) on the surface of the dough, leaving a 1/2 inch border on all sides


Now starting from the top gently, yet tightly roll dough, pinching down seams after each roll till…
image
the entire section is rolled into a uniform cylinder, with the seam tightly pinched close.
image
Now flip roll so that seam side faces down. Gently roll the dough with your hands to make a thin uniform cylinder.
image
Mark and cut into 16 uniform pieces.
image
Place the pieces snugly against each other in a greased pan.
Allow them to proof for about 20 minutes, till they puff up nicely.

Place the pan in a 375F preheated oven for about 25 minutes.
After 15 minutes, brush liberally with some more herb butter. Increase heat to 400F and continue to bake to get a nice golden crust on the rolls.

Take out of oven and brush liberally with fresh beetroot juice to add the bloody color.

Bake for another 3-4.minutes to set the ‘bloody’ red color.
Allow to cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes.
Serve while still slightly warm…Have your friends pull out each roll with their hands,
and enjoy these deliciously indulgent buttery treats! 🙂
