Warm water --- 1/2 cup
Warm milk ---- 3/4 cup
Egg ---- 1
Butter --- 2 tab sp softened
Salt --- 1/2 tea sp
All purpose flour ---- 4 cups
Active dry yeast --- 2 tea sp
sugar --- 1 tea sp
Milk for glazing

Pre-heat the oven for 10- 15 min.
In 1/2 cup warm water add yeast and 1 tea sp sugar and mix well and leave in a warm place for 10 min. to rise and become creamy and bubbly.
Now in a big bowl add butter, flour and salt and rub well then add egg, milk and make a soft dough.
Then place this dough on a floured surface and knead for 10 min. or till dough become smooth and elastic.
and place the dough again in the same big bowl grease alittle butter on top and cover and leave in a warm place for 1 - 2 hours or till it become double in size.
After 1 hour punch down the dough and take it onto a lightly floured surface divide in to 6-8 pieces and shape each in to a roll in to rounds or fun shapes or knots as you like.
now place them in a lightly greased baking sheets and again leave them to rise in a warm place

After they rise up glaze them with milk and bake them in a pre heated oven for 20 - 25 min. at 350degrees or till golden brown.
Remove to wire rack and let them cool
Serve with any soup
Enjoy your meal.

Note:--- Kneanding the dough is important here it will develop gluten and helps in riseing the dough.Kneand the dough for 10 min,on a lightly floured surface.
Fold the dough towards you and then push down away from you with the help of your heel of your hand again turn the dough to your side and repeat the same thing till dough become soft and elastic and non sticky. this will take 7-10 min.
This will give your bread or rolls a nice soft texture.
one more thing about oven s preheating is important heating time depends on your oven model mine is a gas oven that takes little long time to heat so that pre heat the oven for 10 min. before and see and then set the heat.
