Taro Rolls

Hawaiian taro (poi) flour and purple food coloring are used to create these unique rolls.



Step: 1

Combine water, poi, butter, egg, yeast, and purple food coloring in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook. Let stand until yeast softens and forms a creamy foam, about 5 minutes. Add sugar and salt.

Step: 2

Mix on low speed, adding flour gradually, until dough comes together and texture is smooth.

Step: 3

Turn dough out onto a floured work surface. Divide into 18 pieces; shape into rolls.

Step: 4

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Step: 5

Place rolls on the prepared baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 20 minutes.

Step: 6

Bake in the preheated oven until bottoms start to brown, about 20 minutes.

The best flavour of the flour can make a real deal to your bread. Different brands do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal dough , which not always rise as well as white bread.

To make this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.

A bread first rising can be done in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it night before , then clear it off the next day.
