Take a bowl and add one tablespoon sugar, two tablespoons of active dry yeast, and then add 1 cup of fresh milk (lukewarm).

Mix it well and let it bloom for the next ten minutes as the active dry yeast needs to dissolve in liquid before using, so let it bloom until foamy.

After the milk bloom, add ½ cup unsalted butter (melted butter) and one large egg and mix a little.

Then add 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour, ¼ cup sugar, and one tablespoon salt and mix to form a dough.

Now, let the dough sit for 20 minutes and don’t cover it. Resting dough will help you knead easily and be less sticky.

Sprinkle some flour and brush the dough with butter for this soft dinner roll recipe.

Now to proceed further for this soft dinner roll recipe, knead the dough for 10 minutes or until the dough gets smooth.

Once done, place the kneaded dough in an oiled bowl and cover with cling film.

Now, you go take a nap and let the dough rest too for 1 hour or until it’s double in size.

After an hour now, the dough is double the size you have kneaded, so punch out the gas.

Few last steps are remaining now for a soft dinner roll recipe.

Now divide the prepared dough into equal pieces and form it into a ball-like shape.

Take the baking tray, place the butter sheet, and put the balls one by one into the tray, and cover once again with cling film. Let it rest for 30 more minutes which is your 2nd proofing.

In a small cup, break one egg and mix it well with one tablespoon of milk. With the help of a brush, brush the egg wash prepared smoothly on every dough ball piece.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 20-22 minutes.
