Flower Bread with Spicy Onion Filing #BreadBakers

  For this May 2017 Bread Bakers the theme choosen by Julie Menghini of Hostess at Heart was April Showers bring May Flowers and Mother’s Day. Bake any bread that reminds you of flowers or Mother’s Day.

    I want to make a stuffed flower bread  , so as usual savoury stuffing . Instead of my favourite potato stuffing , I went for this simple onion masala.

Requirements :
Whole Wheat Flour – 3 Cup
Active Dry Yeast – 2 tbs
Salt – 1 tsp
Sugar – 2 tbs
Lukewarm water – 1 ½ cup
Butter – 1 tbs
For Onion Filling :
Onion – 2
Oil – 1 tbs
Ginger garlic paste – ½ tsp
Chilli powder – ½ tsp
Garam Masala – ¼ tsp
Salt – 1 tsp

In a bowl mix the flour , yeast , salt and sugar together.

Add in the lukewarm water and mix well.
Knead well for about 10 minutes till the dough becomes soft.
Add in the butter and knead again for 10 minutes.
Cover the dough and let it double for two hour.

Onion Filling :

Peel and chop the onion.
Heat oil in a pan , add the chopped onion and ginger garlic paste. Saute  till the onion becomes translucent.
Add in the chilli powder , garam masala and salt.
Stir for five minutes and take off flame.

Making of Flower Bread :

Divide the dough into four equal parts.
Roll each part of dough into round disc.
Place a rolled round disc , spread melted butter and a spoonful of the filling.
 Place second rolled disc on top and repeat the same as above .
Followed by the third rolled disc and filling and on top place the fourth rolled disc.

Place an inverted glass on the center of this arrangement.
With a knife , cut the circle into four followed by eight and sixteen.
Take a part and twist gently, Repeat this on all parts.

Apply melted butter on top and sprinkle sesame seeds in the center.
Bake the bread in a preheated oven @ 200*C for 30 minutes.
Let it cool in the rack and serve.
Flower bread is ready to serve.
