Baking a rather ‘Simple’ Stuffed Bread 

When I was a child, I had a book on baking bread and I used to read it everyday, never thought even I would be able to bake one myself, and that too customized to my needs. Although this recipe involves baking a simple bread, we can add variations to create different ones (will cover in other recipe).

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp Instant Yeast
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1.5 cup all purpose flour, maida (also can mix 50:50 wheat flour and maida)
  • Milk 2 tbsp
  • Yoghurt 2 tsp
  • Salt (as per taste)
  • Olive oil 1-2 tbsp

Method:

Add sugar and yeast to a 3/4 cup warm water (should be warm, not very hot). Leave the cup in a dark place for 15 min so that the solution rises and bubbles up ( I generally keep it in switched off microwave).

Take flour, add the yeast solution, little by little, add milk, yoghurt and make a little sticky dough, with the help of dry flour and your muscles, put some nice boxes with your hands, for the gluten to develop. Oil the container and put the dough  inside it n grease the dough also, a little. Keep it in a warm place for 2 hours. Cover it nicely with a cling wrap (I generally preheat oven at 180 for 5 min n then turn it off, keep the container inside switched off oven for 2 hours).


This bread can be rolled and filled with any stuffing (masala aloo like samosa stuffing, shown in picture below or Chinese vegetable stuffing) and can be topped with mozzarella cheese, yummy.


Preheat oven for 10 min at 200 degrees and bake the bread for 20-25 min till golden brown.
