Hi Reena, Thankyou so much .. I always bake in OTG .You can apply butter or eggwash and bake it for another 5-7 minutes until you get an even colour crust.

Hi, your recipe looks quite amazing… Could you tell me whether u bake it in otg or convection?

I hv tried baking it couple of times in convection. However, I hv noted the bread doesn’t brown at the top at all… Tried milk wash too… Any tips to share
