Make the Instant Pot No Knead Dough
Turn your Instant Pot on and press sauté button.
Add the butter to Instant Pot and once it starts melting, turn sauté button off immediately.
Let the residual heat melt the butter, then add the milk, and the brown sugar. Mix.
IMPORTANT: The milk-butter mixture must be between 105F and 110F (40C to 43C) which is just above the body temperature. If the liquid mixture is too hot then you’ll kill the yeast and the dough will not rise. So, test the liquid with your finger or a thermometer. It should be warm but not hot.
Add the yeast, mix, and wait for about 5-8 minutes until it foams.
Add the carrot purée, shredded carrots, and mix.
Add the flour, salt, and mix with a wooden spoon until the dough forms.
Close the lid on your Instant Pot, press the Yogurt function and change the timing for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, open the lid. The dough should be soft, puffed up and doubled (or almost doubled) in size.
Make Carrot Bread Rolls
Preheat the oven to 425F
Line a 13x9-inch roasting pan with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
Knead the dough a few times. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions. I like to use my digital scale to do that.
NOTE: the dough will be sticky! It is expected! Get a bowl of water and dip your hands into it periodically. The water will help the dough not stick to your hands.
Shape your 12 equal pieces of Carrot Bread Dough into rolls.I like to flatten each piece slightly, now imagine you are wrapping something inside that dough by stretching all the edges around it like a balloon. This will form a nice ball with a "seam" at the bottom. Place each roll onto a prepared pan.
Cover the Carrot Bread Rolls with a kitchen towel and leave in warm place for 30-45 minutes or until the rolls are puffed up.
Brush the rolls with half and half cream (or egg wash) liberally and bake in the fully preheated oven for 20 minutes.Turn your pan around midway so that all the No Knead Bread Rolls get golden colour evenly.
