Hawaiian taro (poi) flour and purple food coloring are used to create these unique rolls.
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.
Mix on low speed, adding flour gradually, until dough comes together and texture is smooth.
Turn dough out onto a floured work surface. Divide into 18 pieces; shape into rolls.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Place rolls on the prepared baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 20 minutes.
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.
