  • How to Make Stuffed Plaited Bread:

    1. For Filling:
    2. Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. Add in the cumin seeds. Let them splutter.
    3. Add green chillies. Stir for a minute. then add chopped onion and fry.

    6. Method:
    7. Dissolve fresh yeast and sugar in warm mixture of milk and water, mix well, sprinkle a little flour and leave.
    8. In a medium bowl mix the yeast, sugar, and milk and set aside in a warm place till it becomes frothy about 10 minutes. Add in the salt and oil. Mix.
    9. In a large bowl add both the flours, mix. Make a well at the centre and add the yeast mixture little by little.
    10. Combine everything using your hand and start kneading. Knead for 5-6 minutes until the dough becomes smooth.
    11. Apply oil over the dough and cover with a wet kitchen towel and place it in a warm place. Let the dough rise to double its size, about 1 hour.
    12. Gently deflate the dough and knead for a minute. Roll the bread dough to a rectangle 1 cm thick.
    13. Divide it into 3 parts along the wider side. Make slanting cuts on either side at equal distance.
    14. Spread the filling and cheese on the centre one third. Cut 1 inch wide strips on either side of the filling.
    15. Make sure there is the same number of strips on each side of the filling. Leaving the end closest to the filling attached. "Braid" the strips up over the filling, tucking in loose ends and wrapping the final piece or two under the bread. Let it rise again, about half an hour.
    16. Brush the top with milk and bake at 180 deg for 15 mins or so till top turns golden brown.
    17. Serve hot with tomato ketchup.
