wheat bread

Ingredients required :

Wheat flour – 2 cups

Jaggery powder – 1 tsp

Salt – 1/4 tsp

Baking powder – 1/2 tsp

Baking soda – 1/4 tsp

Honey – 1 tsp

Curd – 1 tbsp

Milk – 1/2 cup

Cooking Oil – 1 tsp

Butter or Ghee – 1 tsp

Method of preparation :

First, we have to prepare yeast at home. For that, we have to take a small air-tight container. In that, we have to add honey, curd and jaggery powder. We have to mix these things well with a spoon and leave it for 24 hours, by closing the lid of the container.

After 24 hours, in a bowl, we have to put the yeast prepared. Then, we have to add the wheat flour, salt,  half of cooking oil, baking soda and baking powder. After mixing the batter well, we have to put the warm milk little by little. We have to knead the batter for 10 minutes. It will be like chapathi batter. We have to cover the bowl with a lid and leave it for half an hour. Then, we can see that the batter is raised. Again, we have to knead for 10 minutes by adding the remaining cooking oil and forleave for half an hour. In a cooker or pressure pan(preferably indolium), we have to put sand for about 1 cm thickness and heat it in high flame for 10 minutes, by closing the lid, without gasket and weight. Then, we have to   slow down the flame to sim and keep a small stand inside.   We have to take an indolium cooker vessel and grease the inner side with butter or ghee. Then, we have to put the batter inside and level it to a cuboid shape(bread shape). After that, we have to apply the remaining butter or ghee on the outer side of the batter.   We have to keep the cooker vessel on the stand and cook in slow flame(sim) for 30 minutes. Again, we should not put gasket and weight.  We have to switch off and wait for 5 minutes. We can transfer easily the cooked bread, by just inverting the cooker vessel on a plate. We can cut it into required shape, as per our wish. Please try. It is easy.
