Puree olives in Thermomix for 20secs on speed 7 and then set aside. Rinse out Thermomix bowl
Combine yeast, sugar and water in a TM bowl, and mix until yeast dissolves, 10 secs on speed 4.

Turn dough onto silicon mat. Wrap loosely and allow to rise in a warm place for 30mins. Or brush a large bowl with oil to lightly grease. Place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat in oil. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm, draught free place to prove.
Divide dough into 8 equal portions and knead in one piece of butter to each portion. On a floured surface, flatten out each one, brush with olive oil, spread over 1 Tbsp olive puree. Roll up into cigar shape. Cut almost in half length-wise, leaving one end attached. Twist the strips of dough individually, then twist them together and join the ends to make a round roll shape. Place on lined tray, proof for 20 mins till double in size
Brush rolls with egg-wash and sprinkle with Nigella seeds. Bake at 180*C for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
These are rich and tasty (Quite Stunning!!) and of course a variety of fillings could be used, sweet or savory. They freeze well and re-heat easily
