We all evolve ,grow everyday . The most surprise growth for me is Baking in my life as  before i started  this blog i have never dreamt of baking and now  if i am given a choice to tick i will surely tick Baking as my first option. But the cream, sweet in baking alarms me and so i want to prepare something which is good for family and budget . The immediate choice is Bread . Naturally Bread occupies a major part in our menu and so baking bread is useful and i too can indulge in baking often . A variety of recipes are in various blogs , But to get the real inspiration and not copy  i selected few books and referred certain blogs and combined my ideas to bake a bread. As white flour again alarms me i had purchased wholemeal flour  and so the guilt of eating white flour has now gone .Now to the recipe.

Ingredients:

1 .Whole meal flour -2 cups

2. All purpose Flour -1 cup

3. Yeast – ½ tbls

4. Sugar -1 tsp

5.Salt -1 tsp

6.Baking powder – 1 /2 tsp

7.Baking soda -1/2 tsp

8.Oregano flakes -2 tsp

9. Mixed spice powder -1 /2 tsp

10. Milk -1/2 cup

11. Extra virgin Olive Oil – 2 tsp.

Method:

Mix all dry items .

Make a well in the middle and add warm milk, followed by yeast and sugar.

Let them, dissolve and then add milk and knead well.

Apply olive oil and finally give a good coat .

The dough should be pliable .

Cover it with a plastic wrap and leave aside for 1 hour .

Then  knock it down and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 1 hour .

We can apply milk or olive oil on top of the dough before baking to get that glazed effect.

After 1 hour insert a clean toothpick in the middle for 30 seconds and check if it comes clean dry .

Cut into slices after cooling for twenty minutes.

You will get a nice aroma even while baking .

i prefer eating this plain with Tea  or mildly toasted with olive oil  rather than applying jam as we may lose the subtle flavour .A slightly coarse texture Bread is ready.

 Tip

i found the dough not rising well so we can increase the yeast quantity .Oven temperatures may vary.
