Stuffed Garlic Bread – Again Dominos Style

270820122475

I have attempted Garlic Bread earlier and it is one of the most viewed recipe on this blog.      I love the simplicity of that bread and it so easy to put together. If you have never attempted making bread, give it one go you will be amazed with the results. Nothing beats the Aroma of bread being baked in the oven and really trust me you will be really hooked to it. This time i made the stuffed garlic one , and it came out great. I tried to make it a bit healthy by using half atta and half maida. The addition of atta does change the taste and texture of the bread a bit but it is good and for me it was a feeling of goodness as my daughter Sakshi loved bread and it gives me satisfaction in knowing that it is  homemade and a bit healthy as well. So here goes the recipe.

Stuffed Garlic Bread:

Ingredients

All purpose flour 3/4 cup

Atta – 3/4 cup

Method

Prepare Garlic Bread

Heat water till warm and add yeast to it.

Let the yeast proof for 5 mins till you see a frothy mixture.

Add 3/4 cup atta to it and mix nicely with a laddle.

Rest this batter for 45 mins till it doubles.

Add the remaining flour,3 cloves garlic grated and salt and mix nicely.

At this stage i had to add couple of tbsp of water to get the dough together.

Knead it nicely and transfer to a floured counter space and knead the dough for the 8-10 mins till the dough is smooth and springy.

The dough will be a bit sticky so i had to spread some oil in my hands to get the dough together.

Let the dough double again which can take from 1 hr or more.

Preheat the oven at 200c

Transfer the dough  on floored counter space and roll it into a oval shape.

Mix all the ing. mentioned under stuffing except cheese and spread it on half of the dough. Cover it with grated cheese and fold the dough into a half. It will be like the half moon shape.

Brush lightly with oil and  and sprinkle the seasoning and spread the remaining grated garlic.

Transfer it to a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 15 mins.

Slice then into strips and have hot with soup or a cheesy dip.

Have it fresh out of the oven.

Kal Dosai / Set Dosa

Sometimes even if you have time on hand, you dont utilize it and as i tell always i am a real lazy bum and sometimes hates myself for it. I had preared these dosas a week back and planned to post it before 24th as that was the date for the Taste and Create. This time i was back with them after a break of some months and so wanted to be prompt in posting, but my moods had other plans and hence the delay, sorry min and will surely make it before the deadline from next time. This month i am paired with Veena of Veg Juction and have prepared these beauties.

Dosa’s are a regular fare in my home and have followed her recipe completely.

Kal Dosai/Set Dosa

Ingredients

Raw rice 1 cup

Par boiled Rice  1 cup

Udad Dal 1/2 cup

Fenugreek seeds 1 tsp

Salt to taste

Ghee to cook

Method.

Soak both the rice together in water for 3 hours

Soak the dal  for 3 hours

Soak the Fenugreek seeds in little water for the same time

Wash the soaked dal well, drain the water and grind it into a very smooth fluffy batter with minimum water.

Wash the rice and drain out the water. Grind it with the fenugreek seeds with the water that is soaked in. It givs a tremendous amount of flavour to the Dosai. Grind it to a very smooth batter

Mix both the batters nicely by adding salt.

Cover the batter and leave it to ferment overnight.

Next day, Heat a Tawa,Pour a ladle full of batter into it,do not spread the batter as it will spread by itself.

Spread ghee all around the dosa and cook for a minute.

Serve hot with chutney of your choice.

I sprinkled some dry chutney powder on the dosa while it was cooking, this is the way sakshi likes it.

This is off to Taste And Create February Edition.

Paneer Capsicum N Cheese Toast

For me breakfast is a very important meal of the day and i hate to have the same breakfast every day n week so i always try to prepare something different which is good in taste and which is liked by the 3 of us at home. This is a very easy sandwich toast recipe and a very fulfilling breakfast or snack as well. Do try this easy peasy wholesome breakfast.

Paneer Capsicum N Cheese Toast

Makes 4 toast

Ingredients

Bread Slices 8

Paneer Crumbled 1/2 cup

Onion 1 small thinly sliced

Capsicum 1 Finely Chopped

Amul Cheese Slice 2 cut into squares

Salt

pepper 1 tsp

Butter as reqd.

Method

In a bowl mix paneer , Onion,capsicum , cheese,  salt n pepper and mix.

Take a bread slice, spread the mixture evenly in generous quantity and cover it another bread slice.

Spread butter on both the sides and toast in a toaster till nicely crisped and brown.

You can do the same method on a tava as well, after applying the butter, place the bread on a hot tava and press nicely with a spatula and cook on both sides.

Have these hot with Tomato Ketchup!

Pinks Notes

Many add ons can be done to the basic toast, I sometimes spread some mint chutney on the base then then placed the filling.

Adding some finely chopped g.chillies will also give a nice spicy kick to these toast.

Remember the Creamy Curd Dip, i spread that on the base of the sandwich before the filling and then toasted it.

Cooking is all all about you, so cook according to your taste.

Happy Toasting:)
