  • Step 1

    Pour 250ml water into the pot. Push in the legs on the Cook & Crisp Tray, then place the tray in the bottom position in the pot. Spray the Multi-Purpose Pan (or 20cm round baking tin) with cooking spray. 

  • Step 2

    Divide dough into 12 pieces. Roll each piece into a 15cm rope, then tie it into a knot. Place knots in the prepared tin and spray with cooking spray. Place the tin on the tray. Cover with a clean tea towel and leave to prove at room temperature for 1 hour or until doubled in size.   

  • Step 3

    In a small bowl, prepare the sauce while the rolls prove. Add garlic, parsley, Parmesan, salt, and olive oil. Whisk until fully combined.  

  • Step 4

    When proving is complete, place tin on tray and use half of the prepared Parmesan sauce to generously cover each roll. 

  • Step 5

    Close the lid and flip the SmartSwitch to RAPID COOKER. Select STEAM AIR FRY, set temperature to 180°C and set time to 8 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (the unit will steam for approx. 4 minutes before countdown timer begins).


  • Step 6

    When cooking is complete, carefully remove the tin. Brush the rolls with the remaining Parmesan sauce and serve warm.
