Whole wheat Stuffed Braided bread


Recipe inspiration : Gayathri's Cook spot

Ingredients

For the bread

2 cups wheat flour
Salt to taste
1/6 cup oil
Water as required
1 tbsp dry yeast
1 tsp sugar

For the stuffing

2 boiled and coarsely mashed potatoes
1 medium onion chopped
2 tsp oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam  masala powder
Finely chopped coriander leaves

Heat about 1/2 cup water to lukewarm and add yeast and sugar to it. Keep covered for 5 minutes till the yeast froths up.

Add this yeast mixture, salt, oil to the dough and add more water as required to get a soft dough. Cover with a wet muslin cloth and keep in a warm place for atleast 1-2 hrs till it doubles up.

Heat 2 tsp oil, add cumin seeds. When it splutters, add onions and fry till pinkish. Now add turmeric powder, potatoes, salt, red chilli powder and garam masala powder. Mix well for 2 minutes and finally add in the coriander leaves. Mix and keep aside.

Divide the dough into two balls and roll it into a big rectangle but thick. Place half the filling in the center and give the sides diagonal cuts like in the picture.

 

Start folding the strips inwards alternatively from both sides to form pleats. Repeat for the second portion of the dough and keep aside covered with a wet muslin cloth for another 1/2 hour. Brush with milk.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees and bake the bread for 25-30 minutes till golden brown.

I love this idea of stuffing vegetables inside the bread!
And the braided part makes it look appealing to the eyes too.
What did you eat it with?
(You may reply here if you do, I'll come back to check!)
