Green Herbs and Chia Seed Bread Roll...

Green Herbs and Chia Seed Bread Roll...
  I love the nutty flavor and the crunchiness of the Chia. I have made these bread rolls with mint, coriander and green chillies chopped with a tbsp of Chia in it. You can add any fresh herbs of your choice. 
300 grams Whole Wheat Flour
200 grams All Purpose Flour
Salt to taste
1 tbsp Sugar
1 tbsp Chia seeds
11 grams Dry Yeast
150 ml Lukewarm Water
250 ml Water
2 1/2 tbsp Olive Oil
2 tbsp Coriander leaves chopped
1 tbsp Mint leaves chopped
2 Green Chillies finely chopped

Take lukewarm water, sugar and yeast in a  cup. Whisk is well till the sugar dissolves. Keep it aside for it to rise. Take both the flour in a mixing bowl. Mix it together. Add coriander leaves, mint leaves, salt and chia seeds. Mix it once more. Make a well in the centre of the flour, pour in 1 tbsp oil, yeast water and 250 ml of water. With  a wooden spoon combine the flour together. Remove the wooden spoon and start kneading the dough. Knead for 2 minutes. Add 1/2 tbsp oil. Knead for 5 minutes. Keep the dough on a flat surface. Stretch the dough and knead it. If the dough is sticking to your skin, just spray oil on your palms. Knead for 5 minutes more. Apply oil on the dough, cover the dough and let it rise. 
Once the dough has risen, punch it down and knead it for a minute. Divide the dough into 6 equal portions (approximately 152 grams). Grease a baking tray. Take a portion.  You can either sprinkle little dough or apply little oil on your palms so that the dough does not stick. Flatten the dough on a flat surface, fold in 1/2 inch of the dough vertically from each sides. Press the folded edge properly. Now roll in the dough from the top till the centre and similarly roll in the rest of the dough from the bottom to the centre. The 2 edges of the dough will come together. Press and seal the edges. Give a light roll to the dough to get the shape of the bread roll bun. Gently pick the roll up and place it on a greased baking tray. Place the seal edges downwards. Repeat the process with other remaining dough. Cover and let it rise. Once risen, spray water on the bread rolls. Sprinkle chia seeds on top. Bake it for 25 minutes at 190 degrees celcius in a preheated oven. To get uniform colour, after 15 minutes, rotate the tray). Once baked, remove the tray and cool the bread roll down before using it. Best is to bake it in the night for the morning breakfast.
