Home-made Bread

First of all, this recipe is not too easy and it takes quite some time to prepare. After wasting a lot of raw ingredients and trying many recipes, I narrowed it down to this one.

So, if you want to bake breads regularly, you can try with a small one for the first time. If you feel confident enough, then you can go for the bigger ones.

Wheat flour 2 Cups
Maida 1/2 cup (optional)
Dry active yeast 2 tsps
Salt A pinch 
Sugar 1 tsp 
Oil 1 tbsp

Dissolve sugar in 1/4 cup of warm water and add yeast. Keep it aside for 10 to 15 minutes for the yeast to become active.

In a bowl, add wheat flour, maida, salt, active yeast mixture and mix with water to make it a dough. Add oil and knead the dough for few minutes.

Leave the dough in a dry warm place for 2 hours to rise. After 2 hours, knead the dough again and place it in the oven container (oiled inside) in which you wish to bake the bread.

Leave the dough again for an hour in a dry warm place. The dough will rise and fit in the container.

Preheat your oven for 10 minutes at 150 degrees. Place the container with dough in the oven and bake it for 40-45 minutes at 180 degrees.

Every oven is different so you need to check if the bread is baked after 30 minutes by sticking a fork or a toothpick. If the fork or toothpick comes out clean, then the bread is baked.

Remove the container, allow it to cool and enjoy your handmade bread with your family and friends!
