1 tbsp butter for serving (optional)
6-7 pieces of fried bread crotouns

1 medium sized Tomato diced
1 medium sized Cucumber diced
1/4 cup of pickled Jalepones and Black Olives
2 tbsp of Vinegar

Ingredients for Rose shaped cheesy bread :

1 Cup All purpose flour/Maida
1 tsp Active dry Yeast
1 tsp Sugar
Salt to taste
4-5 tbsp Oil + brushing the baking tray
1 tbsp Melted butter for brushing baked bread
100 ml Milk for kneading dough
1/4 cup grated Mozzarela Cheese
1-2 tbsp Oregano flakes
1-2 tbsp of white sesame seeds

Method for Tomato Soup : Wash tomatoes and cut them into 4-6 pieces each and put in pressure cooker add 300-400 ml water along with salt. Switch on flame let it cook on medium flame till 3-4 whistles. When pressure release cool it down and blend in mixer grinder and strain it. Check consistency of soup and add more water if required or if it is thinner than boil it and serve hot with crushed black pepper and butter. Garnish with coriander leaves and fried bread croutons.

Method for Fresh Salad : Mix all the above ingredients in big mixing bowl and give nice toss so that vinegar coats on salad pieces. Simple, easy and quick salad ready to serve.

Method for Rose shaped cheesy bread : For preparing dough of bread heat 2-3 tbsp of milk it should not be too hot just warm if touch with fingers, add dry active yeast and sugar in it, mix well and let it rest for 10 mins..mixture becomes frothy once yeast activate. Take another bowl add all purpose flour add yeast mixture to it mix well with hands , add remaining milk, salt, oil and knead dough with hands by bringing all flour together till dough becomes soft and shiny in texture and it will not break on stretching. All process takes around 5-6 mins , now keep dough in bowl by greasing from all sides and cover it with cling film. Keep it in warm place say microwave for 2-3 hrs till it becomes double in volume.

Take out from warm place and knock out all the air in it by tapping with hands , now divide into small balls like we need for rolling chapati and and shape into round balls and cover them. Take each ball and roll it like shown in attached picture and slit it from sides keeping centre intact and than fold it by inserting 1 tbsp of grated mozzarella cheese in it in the same way as shown in picture. Once done shape all remaining balls into rose shape and cover it, let it rest for another 30 mins for second rise. Sprinkle some oregano flakes and white sesame seeds
and brush some milk over it.

Pre heat microwave at 180 degree for 10 mins at convection mode and than bake these rose shaped bread by placing on greased tray for 20-25 mins or till they are light brown in color. Once done take them out and apply butter on freshly baked bread to keep them soft for longer duration. Let it cool down for 10 mins and than serve with soup and salad.
