How to Make Spiced Chickpea bread

  • Grind the sprouted chickpeas into a coarse paste.
  • Then combine the flour, sprouted chickpeas, dry basil leaves, yogurt, dry yeast, oil, sugar salt, fennel seeds (keep some fennel seeds aside) and water in a bowl and knead into a smooth dough.
  • Cover the bowl with a lid and leave it in a warm place for two hours.
  • Once it doubles in volume, punch down the air and knead the dough again for a few minutes.
  • Now roll it into a rectangular mould for making the bread. Flatten the dough and sprinkle the fennel seeds over it.
  • Cover and keep aside until it rises again.
  • Now preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Arrange the flattened dough in the oven and bake for 20 mins or until the crust turns brown.
  • Serve with any spread or simply with salted butter.
