Knot Dinner Rolls. This was my very long time dream to bake knot dinner rolls, thought the knot din't come out so well, but still i tried my best to make them look good. These rolls were superb soft and yummy looking. I have added oil instead of butter. Earlier i had tried the dinner rolls by adding butter, they were soft but not that soft. Few days back i had tried baking with oil instead of butter and they were so soft, from there i have decided not to add butter to bread until your recipe requires... After getting the right yeast, i really enjoy baking bread and i have stopped buying bread from out. I bake lots of bread but some time i feel bore to click the picture. From now on I have told to myself what ever I bake, should take the pic and share with all my blog friends.. Do try this recipe:)
