Spicy Roast Carrot Poppy Sesame Knotted SD [Formerly Kaiser] Rolls
Because nothing should ever be simple. ;-)
Swiped Floyd's recipe for Sweet Potato Rolls and desecrated the hell out of it. :)
Substituted roast carrot for the sweet potato, BF for AP, and powdered milk reconstituted with orange pineapple juice for the whole milk. Added egg, potato starch, turmeric and a little VWG. Used old fashion pickling spice rather than nutmeg and cinnamon, starting it all off with a SD rye levain. Kneaded dough in Braun K1000 and drizzled in a bit of sesame oil at the last minute. Let rest and rolled over sesame seeds into ropes, knotted and left to rise. Brushed with salted egg/honey wash, sprinkled additional sesame and poppy, baked as directed. Okay, consistency may not be my strong suit, but they taste delish and are soft and light as challah. Thin, delicate crust for a change.
Thanks to Floyd and everyone else here who chimed in about Kaisers too!
