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:
For Garlic Bread
All purpose flour 3/4 cup
Atta – 3/4 cup
yeast 1/2 tsp
warm water 1/2 cup+ 3tbsp
Salt to taste
Grated garlic 5 cloves
Olive oil 3 tbsp
Italian Seasoning 2tbsp
Chilli Flakes 1 tsp
B.pepper 1/2 tsp
1 small capsicum chopped
Paneer chopped in smallcubes
Handful of boiled corn kernels
Salt a big pinch.
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.
