Breads and potatoes, who doesn't like'em? It was a big hit yesterday. This potato stuffed bread loaf was our dinner last night. It was really easy and fun to prepare. Thanks to showmethecurry.com for sharing such a fabulous recipe. The original recipe calls for paneer, but i didn't have it handy so i used potatoes. The spice mixture with extra heat from the green chilies was simply perfect. Maybe next time i would do a different stuffing and experiment by adding some whole wheat flour to the dough. This is a keeper for sure. Well, here goes the recipe,
3 cups All Purpose Flour (maida)
1 cup Luke Warm Water
1 1/2tsp Rapid Rise Yeast
1 1/2tsp Salt
1/3cup Olive Oil
- In a bowl with warm water, add the yeast, sugar, salt followed by olive oil and mix well.
- In another big bowl with the all purpose flour, pour the yeast mixture and start kneading as the dough pulls from the sides.
- Knead it for 6-8 mins dusting with flour if sticky, until you get a soft and smooth dough.
3 Potatoes (boiled, peeled and mashed) (1 1/2cups)
2 Green chilli (finely chopped)
2tbsp Cilantro (finely chopped)
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1/2tsp Red Chilli powder
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
3/4tsp Amchur powder
- Add all the ingredients to the mashed potato, mix gently and keep aside.
Rolling and Stuffing:
- Place the dough on a flat surface and roll the dough into a rectangle with a rolling pin.
- Spread the potato stuffing evenly over the dough and gently press'em.
- Start rolling tightly from one side and make a log out of it.
Rising and Baking:
- Spray oil on to a shallow 9x13 baking pan and place the rolled dough at the center of the pan with the seam side down.
- Cover the dough and let rest for an hour, until doubled.
- With a serrated knife, make slits diagonally on top of the risen dough.
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees, then reduce it to 425 degrees and bake for 25-30 mins. (I baked exactly for 25 mins.)
- Allow the bread to sit on the counter for 5 mins before moving to a cooling rack.
- Let cool for 30 mins on the rack before you slice'em.
- Serve the bread with your favorite sauce.
- Store the leftover bread by wrapping'em with plastic and put it in a ziploc bag.
