Ingredients for Garlic Knots recipe:

  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour / Maida
  • 1 tsp Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt or as required
  • 1/4 Cup Luke Warm Water

Ingredients for Garlic Butter:

  • 2 tsp Butter room temperature
  • 2 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 tsp Salt


  • In 1/4th cup of luke warm water dilute salt and sugar. And add active dry yeast and keep aside for 10-15 min. With this time, yeast frothy and doubles up. Add this yeast dry mixture to flour and combine them well.  Add required amount of water to form a dough. The dough may be little sticky, but no issues, cover them and set side for 1-2 hours.
  • The dough should be doubled its original size and fluffy now.
  • Make 6 equal size portions, by dusting with flour.
  • Further divide, each portion into two and evenly make rod-like shape.
  • Make simple knots out of these cylindrically shaped dough.
  • Hide both the ends to the back side of the knots. And Follow the same pattern to the rest of the individual portions of the dough.
  • And leave them again for 15 min approximately, this makes the knots to evenly shaped. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  • In the preheated oven, bake for 20 minutes or until its done in the center. For me, the baking time taken for garlic knots for this size is exactly 20 min. This duration varies for each oven, so check out the knots in between the baking time.
  • To make garlic butter, combine butter, salt and minced garlic. Brush this paste over the baked knots. And serve hot.
  • Serve them as dinner rolls, as the appetizer. But I love to snaking in between my meals.
