Spicy Swirls

Hi Friends first of all Happy Dasara  to all of you. It has been long time I posted recipes in my blog. As my in-laws came here  for visiting us , we are bit busy in roaming here and there .At last I decided to write the blog today .So just now I prepared these spicy swirls for evening tea time snack. The aroma of of these swirls is filled the whole home. Here goes the recipe ..

Makes:12 Spirals

Strong white bread flour -475g
Fast-action dried yeast -1 1/4 tsp
Sunflower oil - 2 tbsp
Caster sugar -1tsp
Dried chillies -2
Cumin seeds -2 tsp
Fennel seeds - 2 tsp
Coriander seeds - 1tbsp
Water - 275ml
Salt to taste - 1tsp
Milk - 2 tbsp,to glaze


Crush the dried chillies,cumin,coriander and fennel seeds in a mixer. Reserve 1tsp for sprinkling. Put the ingredients in the bowl along the crushed spices.

Mix the flour with water into a dough, and then turn the dough out on to a floured surface and knead  at least 10 mints.Cut it into 12 equal pieces.Roll each piece into a rope about 12 inches long.Roll each rope into a spiral shape and place on greased baking sheets,spacing them well apart.Cover loosely with oiled cling film and leave to rise in a warm place for 25-30 mints or until almost doubled in size.

Once it is done, brush the milk over the dough. Sprinkle with the reserved crushed spices,following the pattern of the spirals.

Bake in a preheated oven, 220 degrees for 8-10 mints until golden and the bases sound hollow when tapped. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Enjoy !
