Masala Bread

During my childhood days in India I used to love eating at the VB Bakery in Vishweshpuram, Bangalore. To recreate one of my favorites, I have used a bread machine to put a modern twist on the VB Bakery classic masala bread.

Masala Bread
Skim milk – 1 cup
Olive Oil – 2 tbsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Sugar – 3 tsp
Bread Flour – 3 cups
Yeast – 3 tsp

To be added during during the mixed bread cycle when the machine beeps
Chopped Onion -1/2 sauted
Dill leaves - 1/2 cup chopped and sauted
Green chillies -2
Corriander leaves choppped - 2 tsp
Curry leaves chopped - 2 tsp
Ginger grated - 1/2 inch

1. Add all the ingredients in the bread machine
2. Set the setting to mix bread and light crust
3. Start the bread machine
4. Make sure the dough is soft elastic ball, if necessary add a tsp of oil if the dough is tight or a tsp of flour if the dough is sticky
5. When the machine beeps add the sauted onions, dill leaves, corriander leaves, curry leaves, grated ginger
6. Cool completely when done and slice to pieces
