Serves 10

  • 2 ½ cup All purpose flour 1/3 cup more

  • 1 teaspoon Yeast

  • 2 tablespoon Butter more to brush

  • 1/2 cup Milk 1/2 cup more

  • For seasoning 1 teaspoon Salt

  • For seasoning 3 tablespoon Sugar


  • 01

    In a heavy bottom vessel, add 1/3rd cup flour, 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup milk and whisk everything well, without any lumps.

  • 02

    Place this on heat and keep stirring on medium heat. After a while, the mixture will start thickening.

  • 03

    Keep stirring till the mixture thickens well. It should be little thick than dosa batter. Remove from heat and let it cool.

  • 04

    In another bowl,take half of the prepared flour mixture, add 1/2 cup of milk and whisk well to form a smooth mixture.

  • 05

    In another mixing bowl, add 2 1/2 cup of flour, 3 tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of yeast. Mix well.

  • 06

    Now add all the ingredients except butter and start kneading.

  • 07

    knead till everything comes together.Now add the butter and knead till you get smooth elastic dough. It takes about 10 – 15 minutes of kneading.

  • 08

    Cover the dough with a cling film and keep in a warm place, till the dough becomes double in size.For me it took 2 hour to double in size.

  • 09

    Once the dough has risen, transfer the dough to a clean working surface, knead for 4 to 5 minutes.

  • 10

    Divide the dough into two equal portions.

  • 11

    Roll one portion into a thick oval shape just like the picture.

  • 12

    Now fold the dough into three parts as shown in the picture.

  • 13

    Now roll the dough again and place in greased bread loaf(8×5) " pan.

  • 14

    Similarly roll, fold and place the other portion of the dough to another bread pan.

  • 15

    Cover the loaf pan with cling film and allow it to rise to double its volume. It took an hour to double the size. I was so happy to see my bread dough rised get well and they touched the grill rack of my oven as I kept them in the oven(off) to rise.

  • 16

    Brush the top with milk carefully. Pre heat the oven to 180 C.

  • 17

    Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Mine was done in 30 minutes.

  • 18

    Cool slightly and invert the bread on a wire rack. Allow to cool completely before slicing.

    They are so soft and flavourful bread that you will love them to make again and again.
