Stuffed Braided Bread with Cheesy Dip

I always want to bake bread at home but practically speaking was having fear from using yeast..with lot of courage i started using it and surprisingly it is so easy to bake bread at home ..You just need to follow steps and measurements precisely and  than u will love to experiment it in different shapes and flavours in your own kitchen that too without any preservatives and emulsifiers present in market brought breads..

Ingredients :

For bread dough u need

1 cup Whole wheat flour/Atta
1 cup All purpose flour/Maida
1/2 cup lukewarm Milk + 2 tsp for brushing bread
1 tbsp Butter/Vegetable oil
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Sugar
1 tsp active dry yeast

For stuffing

1/4 cup chopped Paneer
1/4 cup chopped Onion
1/4 cup chopped Tomato
1/4 cup corns ( microwaved for 1-2 min)
1/4 cup jalepones and olives
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste
1 tsp red chilli flakes
1 tsp oregano flakes

Cheesy Dip 

1/2 cup Milk ( at room temp)
4 Amul cheese slices
1 tsp All purpose flour/Maida
1 tbsp Butter
1/8 tsp Salt
1 tsp Red chilli flakes
1 tsp Oregano flakes

Procedure : To start with bread dough mix sugar and yeast in luke warm milk (2 tbsp) and keep aside for 10 minutes , it will become frothy/ bubbles appear on mixture.Now in separate mixing bowl add both flours , butter and salt mix with hands , add yeast mixture to this and knead soft dough by adding milk slowly slowly.

Take out the dough on kitchen slab and knead it for 5-7 mins till its soft ,smooth and shiny in appearance.. u may need to add some oil/ butter or flour if it sticks much to ur hands. Dough should be soft like when u press it with fingers it presses down and than comes up and retains its original form. Keep this in warm place for minimum of two hrs or till it doubles in volume.

After 2 hrs punch the dough and knead it for 2-3 mins and divide into bigger balls say 2-3 for this amount of dough. Take one ball on kitchen slab by applying small amount of flour and roll it into 1/2 inch thickness in oval  shape with hep of rolling pin ,put stuffing in centre and cut /slit it from sides as shown in picture attached , remember to apply equal no of slits on both sides and now fold them one by one as shown in pictures in braid form. Shape remaining two balls in same way and let them rest for about 30 mins for second rise by covering them with cling film.

After 30 mins brush them with milk and bake it at convection mode at 200 degrees for about 20-25 mins..remember to pre heat microwave at convection mode for ten mins at same temp before to start baking of bread.

Check them after say 15 mins once color changes to light brown from all sides take them out or bake more if required. Immediately apply some melted butter on baked bread to get soft and shiny bread.

For stuffing heat oil in pan , saute chopped onions till it is translucent in color , add tomatoes cook for 2-3 mins than add chopped panner and corns and cook for 2 mins on medium flame ,add spices and mix well turn off the flame.At this stage add jalepones and black olives and mix it. You can use different veggies of ur choice and non vegetarian can use chicken stuffing too.

Let it cool down completely and stuff inside bread as shown above.

Cheesy dip my all time favourite can be stored in fridge for 2-3 days ,melt butter in a pan , add maida saute for 1-2 min ,slowly add milk and stir it with whisker continuously to avoid lump formation.
Boil for 2-3 mins on medium flame , add cheese slices by cutting them into 4 pieces each and again stir continuously , boil for 3-4 mins and switch off flame. Add salt , red chilli flakes and oregano.
Let it cool down before serving , it taste just like dominos cheesy dip and it becomes thick when kept in fridge so u can adjust its consistency by adding small amount of milk and boil it again.

Enjoy this awesome meal with ur family or friends..
