Posted By Savita
Do you like Thai Curry soups? of course, you do! and do you like green Thai curry with vegetables or chicken in main course? omg.... of course, you do!
Okay, now tell me, do you like Thai Curry Dinner Rolls?
what??? which store sells Thai curry breads??!!!
None that I know about! these rolls are only made at home!!!
:) seriously, this will be THE most aromatic and scrumptious dinner rolls, you would ever eat in dinner! I bet! Specially paired with a mild lentil soup, curry rolls just taste irresistible! When I baked these, my kitchen was smelling like a Thai Restaurant next to a French Bakery! Ha ha!
Vishal is fond of Thai curries in general and always ask me to make him Thai curry soups. For sometime I wanted to share the recipe here, but....... my Thai curry soups never made to blog due to weird reasons... sometimes it's raining and I don't want to mess up the shot, few times I made soup for dinner... and few times in hurry! All in all, never had chance to take a good picture... so... let's see when that happens...
I often make green Thai curry paste at home, and use leftover to make curry chicken, or flat breads or these dinner rolls. Just for this recipe, I decided to go easy on you guys and have used store-bought Thai curry jar. I promise to share recipe for homemade Thai curry paste sometime soon! So, if you want to wait, then please do and make these rolls with homemade curry paste soon.
Now, let's talk diet!
As long as, the Thai curry paste you use is vegan, read labels, these dinner rolls are fully Vegan. No butter, no milk. Only olive oil, curry paste, and coconut milk! I hope you consider Yeast Vegan, because I do. Per my research, yeasts are micro-organisms, and are totally okay for vegan diet.
Sorry, dear friends, this bread is not gluten free. I never tried making it with gluten free flour or buckwheat flour either. So not sure if that can work or not. A worth consideration project though!
Other than these, these dinner rolls, are dairy free, and nut free.
Make Ahead and Shelf Life
This dinner rolls freeze well. I still have a half of rolls frozen. If kept at room temperature, these rolls taste good only 2-3 days max! For best rewarming results, wrap rolls in damp kitchen paper, then microwave for 30 secs at a time, until heated through. You will be amazed how soft these rolls, or any bread rolls in general, will become.
I'm happy to share a awesome recipe with you all! I hope you like it!
How about a weekend project? Bake 12 rolls for delicious soup and bread dinner over the weekend, then freeze rest to enjoy for busy weekdays! Take my word, and pack few to your office for lunch with small portion of soup. Re-heat as I suggested at lunch time, and your all colleagues will be asking recipe :)
Oh! and I missed to tell you, not just for soups, Thai curry dinner rolls are excellent for breakfast or lunch sandwiches.
Have a great weekend!
