    1. Preparing the Dough:
      • In a mixing bowl, combine warm milk, water, sugar, salt, and dried yeast. Stir well to dissolve the yeast. Add the flour gradually while mixing until it starts coming together.
    2. Incorporating Butter:
      • Pour in the melted butter. Mix and knead the dough until fully combined. It might be a bit messy initially, but keep kneading until the dough is smooth and elastic.
    3. First Rise:
      • Cover the dough and let it rest in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it doubles in size.
    4. Shaping the Rolls:
      • Place the dough on a floured surface. Roll it into a long string, then divide it equally into 9 portions. Shape each portion into rounded buns and place them in a greased baking pan.
    5. Second Rise:
      • Cover the buns and let them rise for an additional 15 minutes in a warm spot.
    6. Prepping for Baking:
      • Preheat your oven to 200°C.
    7. Egg Wash:
      • Whisk the egg and 10g of melted butter together to create the egg wash. Using a kitchen brush, gently brush the egg wash over the tops of the risen buns.
    8. Baking:
      • Place the baking pan in the preheated oven and bake the dinner rolls at 200°C for approximately 30 minutes or until they turn golden brown on the surface.
    9. Cooling:
      • Once baked, remove the pan from the oven and let the rolls cool on a wire rack for about 15 minutes. Resisting the temptation to eat them right away is tough but ensures better texture.
    Pro Tips
    • Use warm milk to activate the yeast for optimal rising.
    • Allow the dough to double in size during the first rise for light and airy rolls.
    • Resist the urge to skip the second rise; it contributes to the rolls’ texture.
    • Brushing the rolls with the egg wash creates a glossy finish.
    • Serve the rolls warm for the best experience, paired with butter or your favourite spread.
