Desi Masala Bread

Baking breads are fun and that with all Desi Masala into it, makes it more delicious and fun to eat! Specially those lovely flavored sandwiches, it is just so yum :) :) :) 



It was been a while I baked after coming from India! So thought of trying the different ingredients! And Voila! I nailed it with perfect texture! Oh yes, it is WHOLE WHEAT DESI MASALA BREAD

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups - King Arthur's Whole Wheat Flour 
  • 2 tsp - Rapid Rise Instant Yeast 
  • 1/4th cup - Luke Warm Water 
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup - Luke warm milk for kneading the dough 
  • 3 tbsp - Vegetable oil 
  • Pinch of Salt 
  • 1 tsp of Sugar 
  • According to the taste - Red Chilli Powder, Red Chilli flakes, turmeric powder, cumin seeds powder, Kasuri Methi, fresh coriander leaves, star anise powder
                                   



Method:
  • Proof the yeast in luke warm water and sugar. Put it aside for 10-12 minutes. 
  • Take flour and add rest of the dry ingredients. 
  • Once yeast mixture is ready, add to the flour mixture. Start kneading the dough with luke warm milk and add vegetable oil for kneading. 
  • Knead for around 10-12 minutes. 
  • Put it for the first rise covered with the damp cloth for 1 1/2 hour. 
  • Punch it down, and knead for couple of minutes. Put it for the 2nd rise in the greased loaf pan. Let it rise for 45-50 minutes. 
  • Preheat the oven at 375f and put it inside for 35 minutes. 
Tadaaaaa!!!! It's ready :) :) :)
