Whey water Dinner Rolls

Many of us make Paneer (Cheese) at home by curdling the milk. In general, the cheese is preserved and the water is drained. But, the water we drain is expensive than the cheese!

Yes, the water we drain is known as whey water and contains large quantity of Whey Protein. It considered a complete protein and contains all 9 essential amino acids. That’s the reason; Whey protein powders are sold at very high price. 

So, These Dinner Rolls are Rich in protein (from Whey water) and balanced with Good Carbs (from whole wheat flour)

Ingredients :  1 ½ cup whole wheat flour      ;       1 ¼ cup of all purpose flour         ;       1/4 cup of sugar          ;            1/2 tsp of salt          ;         2 tsp of instant yeast        ;        1/4 cup of milk powder        ;        3/4 cup of whey water         ;        2 tbsp of butter    ;     1 egg     ;   2 -3 tsp of Oil 

Procedure :  In a bowl mix the Luke warm whey water, sugar, yeast, salt and mix well.  Now, add butter and combine well till butter melts.  Add egg ,milk powder mix well and set side.

Meanwhile, mix the whole wheat flour and all purpose flour by sieving method. Add, the flour mixture little by little into yeast mixture to form a smooth and elastic dough that is tacky but not sticky. 

Shape the dough into a ball shape and coat with oil and cover the bowl with damp cloth and allow the dough to rise until double in volume. (may take up to 60 – 90 min.)

Divide the dough into 10 equal parts and shape each into a smooth ball (slightly flatten the top and bottom) Place them on lightly greased baking tray and cover the tray with damp cloth for a second rise for about an hour.

Transfer the tray into a 220°C preheated Oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush the rolls with melted butter and allow it to cool.
