  • To make the bread base: Mix water, sugar and yeast to proof for 10 min. Use the mix only if the yeast has frothed showing that it is active.
  • In a bowl, take all ingredients of dough and add the yeast mixture.
  • Knead well for 7 to 8 min to activate the gluten and achieve a decent window pane consistency. If too dry, add few more tbsp water. Dough should be soft and supple. As you knead, the stickiness will reduce.
  • Keep in a well oiled bowl covered with a damp cloth in a warm place for proofing or doubled in size.
  • In the meanwhile prepare the stuffing. In pan add olive oil and sautee all ingredients in this order garlic, onion, tomato, chicken, spices, to get an aromatic and tasty stuffing.
  • Once the dough proofing is done, knock out the gasses and place it on a floured work surface.
  • Take half portion(for convenience) and roll out to a roti thickness and cut out circles. One circle(for center bud) should be larger than others.
  • Place the stuffing, topped with grated cheese in the centre of the larger circle. Cut out 4 lines on the circle at quarters. Now take each quarter and wrap it over the stuffing, making a rose bud shape. Place in the centre of oiled baking pan.
  • Take the smaller circles and place the filling in one half topped with cheese and fold the circle. Using a fork, press the edges gently to seal the filling. This forms the petals of the rose.
  • Place each petal around the bud to form the bloom.
  • Brush the top with egg or milk and Sprinkle Seseme seeds.
  • Let it rise for another 15 min. In meanwhile preheat your oven.
  • Bake the rose in the middle rack of oven for 30 min at 180 deg C. You can bake till the required browning is achieved( maybe another 5 min depending on your oven)
  • Once done, brush the top with butter and cool.


Good quality yeast to be used. Proofing and kneading times to be followed for fluffy bread.
