Time to Prepare: 2 hrs


2 cups whole wheat flour (atta)

2 cups maida/all purpose flour

1 cup lukewarm milk

3 teaspoons instant yeast

2 tablespoons honey (or jaggery or gugar)

1 tablespoon soft butter

1 teaspoon salt

1 &1/2 cups water or as required

For the filling

1/2 cup black raisins

3/4 cup mini chocolate chips (dark and white)

3-4 tablespoons butter or ricotta cheese or cream cheese or soft paneer

Zest of 1 orange

Granulated cugar to sprinkle on top


To begin making the Chocolate Chip and Raisin Rolls Recipe first mix the flours and salt in a mixing bowl or the bowl of a food processor or stand mixer. Blend them together briefly.

Next, in a large measuring cup, measure 1 cup lukewarm milk. To this add honey, butter and whisk together. Sprinkle the yeast over the milk and allow it to get frothy - about 3-4 minutes.

If using a food processor/stand mixerWith the food processor/stand mixer running on low speed, gradually pour the milk mixture into the processor over the flour.

Slowly add in the water (as much required) and allow the flour to form a soft dough within the bowl of the processor/mixer.

If using a mining bowlAdd the frothy yeast and milk mixture to the flour and begin to knead with your hands.

Add water gradually, only as much as needed and keep kneading it till the flour forms a soft and pliable dough.

Take care not to add too much water or you will have a stick unmanageable dough.

Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead again for 8-10 minutes, working the dough very well, until it is smooth and elastic. (If using the stand mixer, knead on medium speed using the dough hook.)

Transfer the formed dough to a lightly greased bowl, turning once to coat all over. Cover with a wet kitchen towel or plastic wrap and set it aside in a warm place for about 1-1 1/2 hours until it has risen and doubled in size.

Meanwhile, mix together the butter, chocolate chips, raisins and orange zest. Grease and line a baking sheet or a tray with parchment paper and set it aside for later use.

Once the dough has doubled, dust a working surface again with flour and gently roll the dough into a rough 9x12 inch rectangle on it.

Spread the butter-chocolate chip-raisin mixture mixture evenly on top of the rolled out dough.

Then, starting with the longer end, roll the dough up into a scroll, making sure to keep it tight so the filling remains inside.

Use a sharp knife to cut the log into 1 inch rounds. Place the individual rounds on the prepared sheet, cut side down.

Cover the sheet with a wet kitchen towel and allow the rolls to rise a second time, for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, set your oven to pre-heat at 200 degrees C.

When the rolls have risen for 30 minutes, reduce the heat to 180 degrees C, sprinkle sprinkle the rolls with granulated sugar and place them to bake until they are are golden brown.

Remove the Chocolate Chip and Raisin Rolls from the oven, allow them to rest for 5-10 minutes and then serve.

Serve the Chocolate Chip and Raisin Rolls warm along with morning or evening cup of coffee or tea or as an after-school snack for your kids.
