Ingredients for Wholemeal Bread Recipe

  • Whole Wheat Flour 3 cups

  • Refined Flour 1 cup

  • Oil for greasing

  • Fresh yeast 1 1/2 tablespoons

  • Brown sugar 1 tablespoon

  • Salt 2 teaspoons

  • Milk 1/4 cups

  • Vanaspati 2 tablespoons


Step 1

Preheat the convection oven at 230°C. Prepare the loaf tin by greasing it with fat or oil and dusting it with a little flour. Place fresh yeast in a small bowl and add sugar and quarter cup of water. Sift maida, atta and salt together. Make a well in the centre, pour the yeast mixture into it.

Step 2

Bring in some of the flour from the sides into the centre and swiftly make a paste. Cover with the remaining flour and keep as it is, covered, for fifteen minutes to ferment. Add the milk and ghee and knead into a soft dough.

Step 3

Dust a fresh bowl with some flour and keep the dough in it, covered with a damp muslin cloth, to ferment for an hour and a half. Knead back and rest for further ten minutes. Shape the dough like a pillow and place it in the prepared loaf tin, cover it again with a damp muslin cloth.

Step 4

Allow it to rise for thirty minutes or till it is double in size. Bake in the preheated oven at 230°C for an hour. To check if it is done, knock at the bottom with a spoon. If it sounds hollow, that means the bread is done.

Step 5

Remove the tin from the oven and allow it to cool on a wire rack.
