Roux – ▢3 tablespoons whole milk – ▢3 tablespooons water – ▢3 tablespoons all purpose flour Dough – ▢2 1/2 cups all purpose flour – ▢2 tablespoon dry milk powder (for baking) – ▢1 tablespoon instant yeast – ▢1/4 cup sugar – ▢1 teaspoon salt – ▢1/2 cup whole milk – ▢1 large egg – ▢1/4 cup unsalted butter (melted)

Step 1

– Prepare the Roux or bread starter by mixing the milk, water and all-purpose flour until it forms a smooth mixture. Cook over low heat, stirring continuously, until the mixture becomes thicker but not pasty. Remove from heat and let cool.

Step 2

– Fit a stand mixer with dough hook, add the roux and all the Dough ingredients together, mix on low speed until combined, about 2 minutes.

Step 3

– Increase the speed to medium-low and knead for another 5-6 minutes or until the dough is smooth, elastic and soft. You may knead by hand, and it will take about 15-20 minutes.

Step 4

Shape the dough into a ball and place in a lightly greased bowl. Cover the bowl and let the dough rise for 90 minutes, or until puffy. Divide the dough into 9 portions, shape into a ball and place on a greased 9-inch baking pan. Cover the rolls and let rise again for 50 minutes.

Step 5

– Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C).

Step 6

Brush the surface of the rolls with milk and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the surface turns golden. Remove from heat and serve warm.
