Rose Rolls looks as well as tastes amazing. Perfect treat on Valentine's day dinner or for snack. Easy to make tasty filling rolls which could be made with any of the stuffing of your choice. I have taken the idea from this site and used my normal bread recipe to make this egg less bread rolls.

These rolls tastes similar to pizza if you use cheese in the filling. Soft bread rolls which looks amazing because of its shape and tastes great because of its filling. I have made here 4 chicken, 3 spinch and 3 chocolate filled rose rolls.

These rolls are so versatile you could stuff them with savoury (Non veg-Chicken, mutton, beef and sausages) (Veg-Mixed vegetable, potatoes, spinach, mushroom and paneer) or Sweet stuffing like grated chocolate, coconut, cinnamon..etc could be used for dessert choices.
