Wholemeal Buns (makes approx 6)

400ml warm water
2 tsp dried yeast
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp poppy seeds
2 tsp sesame seeds
100g wholemeal flour
500g strong flour
1 tbsp Himalayan salt
2 tbsp olive oil
1 egg 
1 tbsp milk

Place warm water in a small bowl and sprinkle over yeast. Stir in sugar and leave to ferment for about 15 minutes. Mix together poppy and seasame seeds (set aside a touch of mix for garnish). Combine flours, seeds and salt in a mixer bowl. Pour oil into fermented yeast and add to the flour mixture. Knead with dough hook for 4 minutes. Place dough in a clean bowl and cover with a damp, clean tea towel. Leave in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size.

Knock dough back and divide into 6 equal sized pieces. Form into balls, lay out on a baking tray and rest for 10 minutes. To make eggwash, whisk together egg and milk. Brush rolls with eggwash, sprinkle with reserved seeds and bake for 30 minutes.

Heat roasting pan with oil in the oven, add sliced potato and cook for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with rosemary salt (recipe below), and return to the oven for another 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
