Recipe source: Happyhomebaking

2 cups + ¼ cup all purpose flour
1 cup milk
¼ cup canola oil
¼ cup sugar
1 tsp instant yeast or 1 ½ tsp active dry yeast
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¾ tsp salt

1 tbsp cinnamon powder
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup unsalted butter melted

Add milk, sugar and oil in a pan. Heat the mixture till just about to boil. Let it cool till it is lightly warm to touch.
Add 2 cups flour and instant yeast in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add the warm milk mixture and stir with a wooden spoon.
Cover and keep aside for 1 hr.
Now add in the remaining flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir until the mixture comes together. Dough will be sticky.
Either proceed to make rolls or chill for later use.
Mix cinnamon and brown sugar in a small bowl.
Dust work surface liberally with flour and transfer the dough to the work surface.
Dust some flour on top of dough and roll out into a rectangle as thin as possible. (Don’t worry…its little difficult to manage the dough, but the end result is worth it!!)
Brush the surface with melted butter and sprinkle the cinnamon mixture.
Roll the dough as tightly as possible starting from long end. Pinch the seams to seal.
Cut into 1” thick slices and arrange in a parchment covered baking pan. Keep rolls closely.
Cover and let rise for 30 mins.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degree Celsius for approx. 20 mins until the edges become golden brown.
Take out and keep on a cooling rack.
Mix 4 tbsp icing sugar and enough water to make a thick paste. And drizzle over warm rolls.
Serve warm.
