Onion Cheese Roll

Today, I wish to share an interesting snack recipe with you. Let us see how to bake this yummy snack!


For the covering:

All purpose flour or maida - 120 gms 

Dry yeast - ½ tablespoon

Honey - 1 tablespoon

Salt - ½ teaspoon

Vegetable oil - 1 tablespoon

Milk - for brushing 

Black sesame seeds - ½ teaspoon

White sesame seeds - ½ teaspoon

For the filling:

Onion - 1 no, large, sliced

Kalonji or Nigella seeds - 1 teaspoon

Oil - 1 teaspoon

Mozzarella cheese - grated, 2 tablespoons

Salt - to taste

Oregano - ¼ teaspoon (optional)


How to prepare the covering:
  • Dissolve honey in 30 ml of warm water in a bowl. Add in dry yeast, mix and cover with a lid. Set aside in a warm place for 10-15 minutes to activate the yeast. When the yeast is activated, the surface froths and rises.
  • Mix all-purpose flour and salt in a large bowl. Add in the activated yeast mixture. Blend together. Add around 60 ml of warm water and knead well for about 6 minutes to form a pliable dough.
  • Add vegetable oil and mix well. Shape the dough into a ball, cover with a moist cloth and set aside for 1 hour or till the dough rises to double the size.  
How to get the filling ready:
  • Heat oil in a kadai, add kalonji and sauté for a minute. Add in sliced onion and fry till the pieces turn transparent. Add salt and oregano. Mix well. Finally add in the grated cheese and mix well. Switch off the stove. Divide the filling into 4 equal parts.
How to make the rolls:
  • Once the dough reaches double the size, press down the dough to remove the excess air. 
  • Place the dough on baking paper or parchment paper and knead well. Dust with flour as needed while handling the dough.
  • Divide the dough into 4 equal parts and shape them into balls.
  • Roll out one ball into a oval shape. Make vertical slits in the lower third to make 4-5 strips.
  • Place one part of the filling in the upper end and roll it around. Pinch the tip of the strips with the dough and place it in a greased tin or tray.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining dough balls and arrange the rolls in the tray. Cover with the damp cloth and set aside for 45 minutes.
  • Later, brush the rolls with milk and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
  • Bake in a pre-heated microwave oven in convection mode at 180℃ for 15 minutes or till the surface turns golden brown in color.
  • Allow it to cool. Gently separate the edges from the tin and invert it over a plate. Separate the rolls and place them on a wire mesh to cool fully. Serve with tomato ketch up.
