Ever since discovering the 2ID recipe I’ve been wanting to make these garlic knots with the dough. The only tricky part about these little knots is the making the knot itself. Don’t worry, I’ll have some step by step photos below.
No Yeast or Rise Time
The great thing about this dough made with self-rising flour and greek yogurt is that you don’t need to let the dough rise. There is already baking powder in the flour itself and that helps the dough rise. The original recipe I had for this dough called for using a can of store bought pizza dough and you can go ahead and use that too if you do not have any time to make these.
Air Fryer Cook Time
If you plan on making these garlic knots in your air fryer you can! Set the timer to 350 and bake them for 10 to 12 minutes.
Oven Cook Time
No air fryer? No problem! You can bake these garlic knots in the oven. Set the oven to 375 and bake them for 20 minutes.
How to make Garlic Knots
Combine the greek yogurt and self-rising flour together in a bowl. Mix well and dump out the dough onto a work surface. I have made this dough so many times that I know there’s always going to be that leftover flour that doesn’t combine into the rest of the dough.
Form the dough into a ball with your hands on a work surface and cut the dough into 8 equal pieces. I use a bench scraper for this.
Let the dough sit in the fridge for a while before you start working with it. I find that this makes it easier to work with. Some people complain that the dough is sticky. Flour your hands or wet your hands when you are ready to start working with the dough.
Roll the dough balls out into a long rope.
Tie the dough up like you were making a knot on your tennis shoe.
Brush the dough with butter and spices and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
