I am big time reader Of new innovated recipes.. Once I was surfing and found amazing recipe of pesto.. And it turned out really mouth watering. Pesto is nothing but a mix of basil, garlic, olive oil, pine nuts we can use any nut like walnut, ground nut, almonds.
It’s a very basic pesto roll I have prepared with sourdough. I used blue bird yeast to ferment the all purpose flour. Mixed 1 tsp of yeast in warm milk with little sugar, once it become frothy add 350 gma flour and start kneading for 4 to 5 mins until the dough is soft. Cover it with damp cloth and place in warm place for 2 or 3 hrs or until it doubles in size. I place my dough in warm oven. It works wonderfully.
Now once it double in size , with help of rolling pin. Now spread generously homemade or ready made pesto on it. Roll the dough now and with help of sharp knife cut it in 2.5 inches long. Again place these small rolls in baking tray putting some gap between each. Put a damp cloth to cover and place it in a warm place, let the bread double again.
Before baking brush the rolls with egg wash.. It will give shine to the rolls.
Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 mins at 180deg.
Can be served with soups and pasta.
