    Paneer pesto pull apart rolls, ah I love the flavour of this  soft bread.Lately I have not been baking much of breads since both the kids are away. Now that my son is back, I am back to baking breads again. This month for Bread bakers, Kelly of Passion kneaded is our host. She suggested that we bake a pull apart bread and I baked these fluffy soft Paneer pesto pull apart rolls.

    Paneer Pesto Pull Apart Rolls

    Both the kids love more of savoury bakes. The main ingredients of the filling are paneer and cashew. Paneer is vibha’s favourite and Cashew is Sai’s and so the filling will be loved by both. The roll as such is very soft and I feel the paneer adds to the softness while the cashew adds a little crunchiness with every bite. I have used coriander more as a flavouring agent. You can choose to use mint or basil. The combination of the filling can be endless. You can choose to make sweet rolls too.

    Bread baking is therapeutic. Ask any baker and you will get the same response. I love to bake breads more than cakes.And when themes are given out, you start to think about the endless variations and as I write this, I am thinking of many more rustic indian flavours that I can incorporate in pull apart breads.

    I have earlier posted some pull apart rolls but it is the technique which is important here. I love the way these rolls look after shaping.It is a perfect finger food as well if the rolls are smaller in size. Suits perfectly for a kid’s birthday party as it is less messy and tasty. You can make both the sweet and savoury versions at the same time with the same dough and different fillings.
