Rozky | Slovak Bread Roll

Once again I am back with my fellow food blogger, Jolly who suggested to start another event ‘Recipe Swap Challenge‘ where two members’ll pair and has to share a dish from their partner’s blog. Isn’t so interesting ?? For me it’s a superb idea and I joined the group. Many-times what happens is, some dishes from our fellow food bloggers attracts all of us and we just bookmarked those ones to try later. But that is never happened for me, always my bookmark list fills. So by this group, I feel that I can prepare all those dishes if paired with that belonging member. 

For the first challenge in that group, I have paired up with Mayuri di. She is such a kind person whom i know since a long time through another food group. I am just in love with all her baked goodies. When I came to know that I have been paired with di, then I started browsing first my bookmarked lists 😉 and came across the Rozky (Slovak Bread Rolls) which she had posted for Bread Bakers theme. So I have picked that recipe but made a vegan version of those mini baguette like rolls 😊.

In Slovakia, the most popular form of bread used is named as Rozky (Rozak is the plural form). These are basically some mini baguettes but slightly curved to give a crescent shape. The ingredients used are so basic ones. Also the process is really easy and there is no need of any fancy tricks to maintain. Simply make dough balls, roll and cut each ball into quarters, roll into shape as slightly curved. These baked rolls are the widely used dish in Slovak cuisine. Here I have prepared in totally a vegan version means no butter or no milk or no egg-wash 😉, yet the outcome is wow !! These can be served with some sauce or as an accompaniment with any soup or with evening tea.

So do try these Rozky or Slovak Bread Rolls. If you tried my recipe and enjoyed fully, then please share some pictures of your creation with me.
