Cooking Instructions

For the chicken livers:

1. Season livers with the spices.

2. Heat a little oil in a non-stick pan and fry onion and garlic. Then add the chilli.

3. Add in the chicken livers and brown them. Cover with a lid to finish the cooking.

4. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the cream.

5. Simmer on a low for 5 minutes.

To make the rolls:

1. Put 3 cups of the flour, yeast, castor sugar and salt in a bowl. Combine well.

2. In a separate bowl, mix butter, milk and egg.

3. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients into it.

4. Add ½ cup (60 g) flour and combine with a wooden spoon until incorporated.

5. Add the remaining ½ cup (60 g) flour and mix until a ball of dough is formed.

6. Knead until dough is slightly sticky and soft, and pulling away from sides of bowl, about 8 minutes.

7. Transfer dough to a lightly greased bowl. Cover with a towel or plastic wrap, and leave to rise in a warm spot until double in size, about 30 minutes.

8. Knock down dough by punching it lightly. Pinch off pieces and form 16 equal-sized rolls, placing them on a greased baking tray.

9. Cover with a towel and leave to rise for 30 minutes. In the meantime, preheat oven to 180 °C.

10. Bake until golden, 12-15 minutes. Brush with melted butter while hot.
