Chicken Bread

I simply love baking. Its been a really long time since I actually baked anything. I got this amazing bread recipe from Shab's Cuisine. It is so amazing and simple to make, that I have already made two loaves, with requests for more. I just halved the ingredients. Also, for the filling, I used leftover minced chicken which I cooked for dinner the previous night.  And the filling can be made with anything...not just chicken.

For the Dough
Plain Flour or Maida: 2 cups
Yeast: 1/2 tbsp
Milk Powder: 1 tbsp
Salt: a pinch
Oil: 2 tbsp
Egg: 2 (1 is for the eggwash)
Castor Sugar: 1tsp
Lukewarm water: 1 cup
Sesame seed: 1 tsp for sprinkling

For the Chicken Filling:
Minced Chicken: 200gms
Green Peas: 50gms
Onion finely chopped: 1
Tomato finely chopped: 1
Ginger garlic paste: 1 tbsp
Turmeric Powder: 1/2tsp
Corriander Powder: 1/2tsp
Cumin Powder: 1/2tsp
Garam Masala:1/2tsp
Corriander leaves: for garnishing

For the Dough

  • In a bowl, mix together flour, salt, caster sugar, milk powder and yeast. Mix well
  • Make a well in the center of this and add a beaten egg and oil. 
  • Knead it to make a medium soft dough using the lukewarm water.
  • Leave it to rise, for 2 hours or till it rises to double the size.
  • Punch it back and divide the dough into two parts.
For the Filling
  • In hot oil, saute the onion. 
  • Add the ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell leaves.
  • Then add the tomatoes and cook a bit.
  • Add the dry masalas and salt and cook covered on a medium flame.
  • Garnish with corriander leaves.
The assembling

  • Dust the working surface with flour. I did this on the baking tray because it is a bit difficult to move the bread once the assembling is done.
  • Roll the dough into a rectangular shape.
  • Place the filling in the center of the dough horizontally, leaving some space on both ends.
  • Cut the edges with scissors, and fold each cut part from each side, so they overlap each other.
  • Tuck in the ends.
  • Brush the top of the bread with a beaten egg and sprinkle sesame seeds.
  • Leave it to let it rise, for around 20 mins.
  • Bake the bread at 200 degree C for 25 mins, or it turns golden.
  • Take it out of the oven, and brush butter all over it while it is hot. 
  • Enjoy it hot!!
