30ml cooking oil

  • Sift flour and salt together. Add sugar and yeast.
  • Add oil and enough lukewarm water, cut in with a knife and mix to a soft, sticky dough. Add more water, if necessary.
  • Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5-10 mins, or until dough is smooth and elastic. Place dough in a large, lightly oiled bowl, cover and leave to rise in a warm place for about 30 mins, or until doubled in size.
  • Knock down dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Divide into 20 pieces and roll into smooth balls.
  • Place onto greased baking trays. Cover and leave to rise in a warm place for about 15 mins or until balls of dough are well risen.
