Beetroot Bread – With Indian Twist #BreadBakers

  For this month’s Bread Baker Karen of Karen's Kitchen Stories gave us to bake with Root vegetables like onion , potato , carrot , Turnip etc.,. I choose to bake with Beetroot .

  This beetroot bread has the 4Gs  - Indian flavours like ginger , garlic , green chilli and garam Masala.

  I was typing  the bread now (Today 3:30 PM IST )  when the bread was baking in the oven . I thought of baking the bread yesterday but couldn’t make it. These days I was too lazy in blogging especially typing the recipes. I cook and take photos but I don’t know why I was not blogging.

Let’s move on to the recipe….

Requirements :

All purpose Flour – 3 cup
Beetroot – 1 medium sized
Active dry yeast – 1 ½ tsp
Salt – 1 ½ tsp
Sugar – 1 ½ tsp
Garlic – 6 cloves
Ginger – a small piece
Green chilli – 5 nos
Garam masala – ½ tsp
Luke warm water – 1 ½ cup
Vegetable oil – 1 tbs

Method :

Peel the skin of the beetroot and chop roughly.
Blanch the beetroot with ¼ cup of water.
Let it cool and grind – Beetroot Puree.
  The water used to blanch the beetroot can be used to     knead    the dough.
   Grind the garlic, ginger and green chilli to a fine paste.

   In a bowl, add the flour, salt, sugar and yeast, mix well.
  To this add the beetroot puree and grounded paste and mix       again.

  To this add the luke warm water and mix well.

  Pour the contents into the kitchen counter and knead well for   ten minutes.
  Add the oil and knead again.
  Place the dough in an oiled bowl and let it double.
  When the dough is doubled punch in the dough and shape      into oval and make slits with sharp knife.
   Place the bread in the baking pan and allow for second rise.  
   Bake in the preheated oven @ 180*C for 45 minutes.
   Let the bread cool and slice.

   Enjoy  this spicy bread with a  bowl of Potato Soup.
