Cheesy soft bread rolls for a quick evening snack. Bread flour is used for this recipe which usually yields slightly chewy, but soft dense texture bread. My college cafeteria used to have this soft white bread sticks which i always crave for …. as there is no escapism, the whole corridor smells like parmesan cheese and just makes irresistibly hungry during mid morning breaks.
