Gather Your Goodies:

  1. 750 g wheat flour
  2. 1 teaspoon of salt
  3. 6-7 hard-boiled eggs
  4. 1 bunch green onions
  5. Vegetable oil (to taste)
  6. 200 ml melted butter (equivalent to a cup)
  7. 600 ml water


1. Crafting the Dough

Start by creating the foundation of these delectable rolls:

  • Pour 750 g of sifted wheat flour into a large bowl and add 1 teaspoon of fine salt.
  • Gradually introduce 600 ml of water, mixing it in stages. Begin with a wooden spoon, then transition to using your hands.
  • Spread a little flour on your work surface and knead until an elastic dough forms.
  • Let the dough rest for about ten minutes, covered with transparent film.

2. Roll Call

Divide the dough in two:

  • Dust the dough with flour and knead again.
  • Shape half into a cylinder, then divide it into 16-18 pieces. Repeat with the other half.
  • Crush each piece and coat with melted butter (200 ml), placing them in an ovenproof dish.
  • Cover with transparent film and let it rest for an hour.

3. Filling the Gaps

While the dough rests, prepare the savory filling:

  • Pour a bit of oil into a pan and finely chop the green onions.
  • Cook the onions until soft, then add 6-7 hard-boiled eggs. Season with salt and pepper, mixing well.

4. Roll, Baby, Roll

Back to the dough:

  • Widen the buttered dough blocks using your hands.
  • Spread a spoonful of the prepared filling on one side.
  • Fold the edges of the dough to cover the filling, then roll up each section.

5. The Finale

Transform the rolls into culinary masterpieces:

  • Place the stuffed rolls on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Set the oven to a temperature of 200°C and bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown.
