♥ Focคcciค....ค first bคked breคd ♥ Nd M being Honest ♥

Ah! We never ate lozza bread during our childhood. It was always tht we ate bread only when we were not keeping well :P…but as we grew we started getting bread at home…Eggless- Harish Bakery bread (this one as it was one of the Amchi’s bakery nd one of our known ppl). As time pasd we started lovin the City Bakery Bread it was so soft nd moist….
Amma started making sandwiches (2-3 varities )…Anu doesn’t eat though(bcoz he never ate onions nor garlic). I loved the fried onion sandwich vch amma made….I remember the day we bought tht sandwich toaster….:P
We had been to Market in blore(10 yrs bac) tht….my aunt was just married nd new to tht place…she just took one jamun(jambul in konkani …the purple colour berry vch we get during april may) from the batti for taste so tht she cud buy the Bai (lady) there started shouting… Enamma hange tinnodu 50 ps kodi…. (how can u eat like tht now gimme 50 ps for one jamun) we were shocked actually as at tht time 50 ps for one jamun was so costly….:P…..guys u myt be wondering na from bread I went to market, jamun all those things….I m just like tht….:P I started the matter bcoz we bought tht toaster the same day….:P

I remember when once someone ( I don’t want to specify but I m sure if he reads this he will kno who m I spking about :P m sure after reading this he wud never take bread to someones house He he he :P) had visited our place and got 2 loafs of simple bread…As soon as he left all started telling is someone sick at our home tht he got bread…it was ok even if he never got ne thing…:P…..Nd thts bcoz we take bread to someone’s place or hospitals only if someone is sick isn’t it? ( I think m dragging this post too sick :P )…I donno each persons custom myt differ…..:P
Then on amma started making fried onion sandwiches which we just loved…it was so yum… I used to sit on my kitchen slab and relish them hot hot as she prepares.
Now to the bread story…….i ate bakery bread everytime….never tried home made bread but wanted to try it once….. when I started getting my hands on baking i decided of baking bread…. Nd tried my hand on wheat bread. It was in my drafts from more than 4 months :P
It got baked nd I nevr had a piece of it also bcoz I wanted my hubby to taste it first (as he is the guinea pig :P)
He ate the piece nd told Aps do u know ht u have baked???? I was worried then comes a answer its focaccia..Italian bread…..its so tasty….:P… …when I checked the pecipe it was similar…but they added cheese Parmesan nd mozzarella…vch I did not.
He he he I never knew the name though
Ne ways I stop my chatting patting here nd move on to my recipe

We need
Wheat flour – 2 cups
Finely powdered oats- ½ cup
Salt – 1 tsp
Milk – 4tbsp
Italian seasoning (basil,oregano,Rosemary,thyme) – 2tbsp
Garlic powder – 1 tsp
Water (luke warm) – 1 cup
Active Dry yeast – 1 tbsp
Black pepper – 1 tsp (crushed)
Butter/olive oil – 2 tbsp
Sugar – 1tsp
Seasme seeds - 1/2 tsp

Place yeast, sugar and milk in a bowl and mix to combine. set aside in a warm place for 5 minutes or until bubbles begin to form on surface.
Mix together the flour, salt, oil, water and yeast mixture, Garlic powder, Italian seasoning, pepper powder, in a bowl and mix until a smooth dough forms. knead on a lightly floured surface for 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic, adding a little extra flour to the dough if it becomes too sticky.
Roll it into a round shape and allow to rest for n hour or more.
Now knead the dough again nd mix well nd rest it for another hour. ( roll the dough into the shape u want to bake rectangular or round).
now apply seasme seeds on top.
Preheat oven at 350F
Now grease the baking tray nd place the bread on it and bake at 350 F for 20 minutes.
Remove from Oven and place on a wire rack.
Once cooled down cut slices.

I mixed it in a food processer as I dint want my hands to stick :P
Now a soft nd tasty bead is ready to Eat.


Add lozza ♥ to make it yummmm.♥
