Servings 8


  • 300 g Plain flour
  • 230 ml lukewarm water +/- 1 Tbsp
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp instant yeast You can use same amount of active dried yeast.
  • 1 tsp sugar


Prepare the bread dough.

  • Whisk together all the dry ingredients and then add water.
    Mix them together to form a shaggy mass of dough.

First Proofing.

  • Let that dough sit and rise for 2 hours in a warm environment.

Divide and shape the dough.

  • Transfer the dough on to a lightly floured work surface.
    Divide the dough in to 8 pieces in such a way that each piece weigh approximately 70g.
    Roll it into small round or oval shapes.
    Place them on a nonstick baking tray or on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Second proofing.

  • Let that shaped dough sit and rise for the second time for 30 minutes.Then press the center of each roll firmly to make a deep slit.
  • Dont hesitate to press down firmly or else the sit will disappear during final rising and rolls will look flat when baked.
    Then let these finally shaped dough sit for another 15 minutes.
    Before taking them into the oven,pour a glass of water on to a baking tray and place it inside the oven.
    This will create steam inside the oven which will delay the formation of crust on dinner rolls which is needed for light and airy bread and also it sees the moisture inside the rolls which will make the inside ,soft and fluffy.

Bake the dinner rolls.

  • Bake them at 410 F for 12-15 min or until they turn golden brown in color.
  • These dimple dinner rolls are not only beautiful,they are unbelievably soft and moist.I hope you will try these dinner rolls and I am pretty sure you will love it.Note:
    Happy Baking 🙂



This dough can be quite tricky to handle. The secret is to keep your hands and the work surface lightly dusted with flour.
