Hi I find it a really difficult to plan the daily menu taking into account the different likes and dislikes of my family.Well...the snacks menu is always for my daughters taste and she loves baked goodies...preferably savoury.So...for day 2 of blogging marathon#17, I have baked Roasted pepper paneer bread.I got this idea when i was blog hopping and saw the paneer masala bread .I wanted a different flavour to the bread , thus baked Roasted paneer bread.
FOR THE DOUGH
All purpose flour 2 cups
Active dry yeast 1 tsp
2 Sugar 1/2 tsp
Salt 1/2 tsp
Oregano 2 tsp
Chilli flakes 2 tsp
Water nearly 1 cup
Olive oil 1 tbsp
For the filling
Bell peppers 3(red, yellow, green..one each)
Cottage cheese/Paneer 200 gms
Oregano 2 tsp
Salt to taste
PREPARATION FOR THE FILLING
Apply a little oil on the peppers.Roast it on stove top till the skin turns black. Switch off the heat and let it cool Remove the blackened skin of the peppers, chop them finely and keep it aside. Dice the onions finely and add to the roasted peppers. Crumble the paneer and add to this above mixture with oregano and the necessary salt Mix everything well and keep it aside
FOR THE BASE
Take 1/4 cup of luke warm water and add sugar to it.
Mix well. Sprinkle the yeast on this and let it prove.
Mix the all purpose flour, salt , chilli flakes and oregano in a wide mouthed bowl Pour in the yeast-water mixture to this. Mix well Add more water and knead it to a pliable dough- nearly for 10 minutes.Let it rest for 45 minutes for it to double.
Gently deflate the dough and roll it into a rectangle approximately 1/4 " thickness Spread the filling mixture on this evenly and press it lightly
Now, start roll carefully from one side into a log Seal the sides with little water
Place this log in a greased bread mould Cover it with a kitchen towel and keep it in a warm place to rise again for 45minutes-1hr
Preheat the oven to 190C
Brush some milk on this bread and bake it for 10 minutes.
Reduce the heat to 160C and bake it further for 20 minutes or till done
Take it out and let it cool for 5 minutes.
Now remove it from the mould and let it cool further for some time on a wire rack
Cut into slices and serve warm
This particular bread had an awesome flavour of the herbs and taste.
