Method for the flavoured oil
1In a sauce pan , heat oil . Lower the flame and add garlic , lemon zest ,thyme and salt .Turn off the heat and add chilli flakes . Let it cool .
2In a bowl mix flour ,yeast ,sugar, salt ,cream, milk and milk powder well .
3Knead it well for 8-9 minutes .
4Add olive oil and knead for further 2-3 minutes .
5Shape it into a ball and apply oil on the dough and place it in a well oiled bowl . Keep it in a warm place and let it rise .
6Let the dough double in size.
7Once it is double , gently punch the dough .
8Using a rolling pin , roll it into rectangle shape .
9Apply the flavourings using a brush. Do not use the entire flavoured oil . Use only 2 tbsp of oil .
10Roll the dough tightly .
11Dust some flour.
12Slice the dough into two equal parts.
13Then further slice it into equal size pieces .
14Line the bread tin with parchment sheet and arrange the dough leaving gap on the side . I used 9" x 4 "x 4" sized loaf tin .
15Do not arrange them tightly . Wait for the second rise .
16Meanwhile pre heat the oven at 200 degree C for 10 minutes . Cover the loaf tin with an aluminum foil and place it in the oven . Place it on the lower rack . Bake for 25 minutes . Take the tin out and remove the aluminum foil . Brush it with remaining flavoured oil and bake it for 10 minutes ( without the aluminum foil ) .
17Transfer it into a wire rack and brush it with butter . Allow it to cool well .
