Whole Wheat Bread


2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup maida

1 1/2 teaspoon instant dry yeast 

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

1/3 cup (80 ml) vegetable oil (I used half  ghee & half oil)

1/2 cup (120 ml) milk

1 cup (240 ml) water (room or warm temperature)


In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients.

Knead by hand or in the mixer for at least 10 minutes.

Let hatch with a damp cloth for 45 minutes to 1 hour till it doubles.

Knock down and flatten the dough, roll it, tuck in the edges and place the dough in a bread pan. It should fill atleast 2/3 of your loaf tin.

Let it grow a second time for 30 minutes. 

Egg wash (optional) 

Take an egg. add 1 tablespoon milk to it. Beat till smooth and brush over the top surface. Sprinkle seeds if your choice. 

Bake for 50 minutes at 180 ° C (cover the top with aluminium foil half way.

Take it off the bread pan rest, cool (till it feels cool, not even warm) and slice with a long sharp serrated knife.
