This bread is fluffy and mildly spicy .
It is flavoured with chopped ginger ,carrot and black pepper .
This goes very well chicken stew or creamy vegetable curry .
- Prep: 1 hr 40 mins
- Cook: 35 mins
1In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients well . (Do not add carrot, ginger and black pepper ) Add warm water . Knead for 9-10 minutes . The dough should be shiny ,smooth and elastic . Form the dough into a ball and lightly brush it with oil . Place the dough in a lightly oiled bow l. Cover it with cling film and let it rise double its size . Once risen, take the dough out knead gently . Add all the chopped ingredients . Knead for another 2-3 minutes . Shape the loaf and transfer it to a loaf tin . I used 8" × 3.5" loaf tin . Cover it with cling film and wait for the second rise . Pre heat the oven at 200°C with both the rods on . Remove the cling film and make a tent with aluminum foil . Place the tin on the bottom rack of the oven . Bake for 35 minutes . The bread is ready when it sounds hollow when tapped . Take the bread out and egg wash it . Place it in the oven and bake for another five minutes . Remove the loaf from the tin and place it on the wire rack . Apply butter liberally . Let it cool at least for 3-4 hrs . Slice it only after it is cooled thoroughly .
I used instant dry yeast.I added it directly to the flour.
Any refined oil or unsalted butter can be used instead of olive oil.
If butter is added use melted butter..
