Last week was hectic with lot of work load at work . I was eagerly looking for the weekend to relax . I have not baked for a long time. It is school holidays here and my boys were looking forward to having some homemade savory bread. Baking is always therapeutic to me and helps me to unwind and relax. I had some home made Mango dip or Thokku sent by mom in law.The mango dip was flown all the way from India. You can find the recipe for Mango dip /Thokku here.
I decided to bake yummy braided mini bread stuffed with home made mango dip . Tasted heavenly and was over as soon as it was out from the oven.
My Contribution for 96th #Foodiemonday #Bloghop theme #Baked my contribution is this wonderful braided Mango dip Mini bread. It is eggless too.
Recipe for Braided Mango Dip Mini Bread:
2.5 Cups All purpose flour (Unbleached)
11 Gms (1 Sachet) Instant Yeast
1/4 Tsp Salt
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Cup Water
Mozzarella 1/2 Cup(Increase or decrease as per your taste)
1/2 Cup Mango Thokku / Mango dip
Heat water till lukeworm. Sift the flour in a large bowl. Add salt and instant yeast and mix well. Make a well in between the flour mix. Add luke warm water and oil and mix well. Knead for about 5 mins until the flour comes together to form a sticky dough. Transfer the dough to a greased bowl and cover it with a clean Kitchen towel or Cling wrap. Place this bowl in the oven or any warm place for about 40 mins or until the dough doubles in size.
Once the dough has doubled remove the kitchen towel / cling wrap ,deflate it and knead for a minute. Divide the dough into 8 equal parts. Roll each dough into a rectangular shape. Spread the mango dip / Thokku ,sprinkle some cheese and roll the dough like a log and seal the edges. Slit the dough in to 2 equal parts with the thokku / dip stuffing facing the top.Seal the edges of both the pieces ,list one piece over the other and plait it like a braid. Repeat the process for the remaining dough.
Place the braided dough on a greased baking tray and form a circle with the braid.Pinch the dough and tuck the edges at the bottom. Allow it to raise for another 30 mins. I baked 3 pcs at one time. Now pre heat the oven at 190C for about 10 mins. Place the baking tray in the preheated Oven and bake for about 30 -35 Mins.
Serve hot with soup of your choice. My boys polished the braided mini bread and did want to have any soup.
A positive feedback and contentment on their faces made my day!!!!!!
