Line a baking sheet with baking paper & sprinkle some durum wheat semolina on it. Place the rolls with a little distance to each other on the baking sheet, sprinkle with some durum wheat semolina from above & cover with a kitchen towel to rest in a warm place for about 45 minutes until the dough volume has increased significantly.
Preheat the oven to 200°C (top/bottom heat) in good time. After the resting period, cut the bread rolls 2 – 3 times diagonally with a knife & then bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes until crispy & golden. Take the finished rolls out of the oven, let them cool completely on a rack & then serve immediately. Have fun baking!
