By shanobiju

April 13, 2017


2 1/2 cup Wheat flour/ bread flour

1 tsp Instant dry yeast

2 tbsp Fresh cream

2 tbsp tbsp Milk powder

Warm milk 3/4 cup +3 tbsp

1 Egg

1 tbsp Sugar

3/4 tsp Salt

For the flavouring

1/4 cup Refined oil

2 tbsp Red chilli flakes

2 tbsp Garlic paste

2 tsp Coriander leaves chopped

1 tsp Lemon juice

1/2 tsp Salt

In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients and heat it in microwave oven for a minute.Keep it aside.


1I've tried this recipe using plain wheat flour and bread flour. Bread flour gives a softer texture than plain wheat flour. I've doubled the quantity of ingredients and baked a pull apart bread and a simple loaf using the same dough .

2In a bowl, mix flour, milk powder, fresh cream,instant dry yeast, sugar ,salt and egg .

3Mix well.

4Add warm milk.

5Knead well for 2-3 mins.

6Add rest of the milk.

7Dough will be sticky.Knead for 7-8 mins.

8Apply oil on the dough and place it in a well oiled bowl for first rise. Cover it with cling film.

9Let the dough double in volume.

10Punch down the dough gently. Knead it for a minute or two .

11Divide the dough into two parts.

12Add the flavoured oil . Keep a tbsp of oil aside.

13Roll it into a rectangle.

14Shape it into a log.

15Slice into 12-15 pieces.Arrange it in a oiled bread tin . Keep it for the second rise. Cover it with cling.Meanwhile Preheat the oven at 180 degree C with top and bottom rods on. The dough should rise 1" below the rim of the loaf tin .

16Now apply the flavoured oil using a brush and cover the loaf tin with aluminium foil. Make a tent with aluminium foil . Place it in the oven and let it bake for 25 mins. Now take the tin out , remove the aluminium foil and apply salted butter or egg wash it.

17Keep it back in the oven and bake for 3-4 mins until the crust is golden brown in colour.

18Remove from the oven and apply salted butter liberally.

I always use Instant dry yeast.It can be added directly without proofing it separately.
The dough should double in volume for the first rise.The dough should rise till 1@ below the rim of the loaf tin.
Proofing time can vary ..
I’ve tried the same recipe with Arshiwad
I always use Gloripan or Angel brand instant dry yeast..
Temperature settings of each oven varys..I use MR 40l..

Dear Madam…

I am sorry to tell you that I had a disastrous baking experience today with your bread recipe…It did not rise at all and moreover with the baking time you have given it dint bake fully…
I wish to ask certain clarifications…
What is the difference between active yeast and instant yeast? How do I mix the yeast with for it to bubble?
How much is the time required to raise the dough?
Is it because I used the wheat flour used for making rotis the bread did not rise?
With the given amount of measurements…when you say that divide the dough into half means that these 2 halves have to be baked seperately?

Do I have to soak yeast or add directly to the mix?
