Garlic and Herb Dough Balls

 Dough Balls 1tick-150x150[1] Makes about 16

  • 325g strong white bread flour
  • 7g sachet quick action dried yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 25 ml warm milk
  • 175 ml warm water
  • 40g butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Small handful chopped herbs
  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, yeast and salt together. Then stir in the milk and olive oil.
  2. Add warm water and mix well to form a soft dough.
  3. Either a) tip out dough onto a floured work surface and knead for 5 mins until smooth, or b) if using a dough hook in an electric mixer (as I do) knead for 5 mins.
  4. Leave for 1 hour in the mixing bowl covered with a tea towel in a warm place. It should double in size.
  5. Tip dough onto a floured surface. Knead for a couple of mins to remove air bubbles. Divide into small balls, place on a baking tray, cover and leave for 30 mins, until risen again.
  6. Preheat oven to 200C. Place butter and garlic in a small bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Pour over the dough balls and sprinkle with coriander.
  7. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

I like to use coriander, chives or parsley on mine, but you can use any herb you enjoy.
