World’s Best Spicy Garlic Knots


Garlic knots

  • 1 ½ cups white bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon instant dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • flour, extra for dusting
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 small handful fresh parsley, chopped
  • Mild hot sauce


  • 1 can high quality diced tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup roughly chopped white onion
  • ¼ cup lightly packed fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon of your favourite sweet hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

Garlic Knots

For the dough, mix the flour, yeast, and salt, and make a well in the middle. Pour the water and 1 teaspoon of olive oil into the well and mix. Knead for about 7-10 minutes until the dough is springy. Line a bowl with the other teaspoon of olive oil, place the dough in the bowl, cover, and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour (or until doubled in size). Tear the dough into 9 separate balls and then roll into long tubes, folding over to make a knot. Place the knots on a baking tray and bake in a 180°C oven for 12 minutes. Prepare the garlic butter by mixing the butter, garlic, and parsley and a dash or two of hot sauce depending on how spicy you're feeling. Dunk the knots with the spicy mixture and bake for another 5 minutes until golden brown.

Spicy Dip

Drain the tin tomatoes removing most of the juices so your sauce isn't too watery then add them to the food processor. Using a garlic crusher mince your clove and add it to the processor along with the diced onion, coriander, lime juice and a splash of hot sauce. Blitz until you have a mostly smooth sauce left then pour into a container and season with salt to taste (about half a teaspoon).
