I have already shared a whole wheat dinner rolls recipe here, it has eggs in them and it works good everytime. I wanted to share a recipe with no egg in them and hence this recipe was born..I have used a paste made with flour and milk and used that to make a dough in my sweet milk buns recipe..Hence i decided to try that trick using whole wheat flour as well. And my idea didn't fail me, what i got is a nice soft chewy textures whole wheat dinner rolls..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
