How to Make Spicy Cheesy Pumpkin Focaccia

  • Mix the sugar, salt and yeast in lukewarm water and let it sit for 5 mins.
  • Meanwhile, combine all types of flour and oats in a mixing bowl. Then add the mashed pumpkin chunks, red chilly or red chilly flakes, garlic, gradually adding the foaming yeast and olive oil, and mix everything well.
  • Transfer the mix to a lightly floured surface and knead for a few minutes, until the dough softens.
  • Now grease a deep bowl with olive oil and place the soft dough in it. Brush with some more oil. Cover it and keep it aside for 1 hour in a warm place.
  • After an hour, punch the dough and press to flatten it.
  • Now add a few drops of oil to the baking square pan, add the dough and sprinkle it with the chopped coriander leaves and keep aside for 1 more hour.
  • The dough will again raise and double in size. Now sprinkle the grated cheese over it.
  • Then preheat the oven to 350F; place the baking pan in the middle rack and bake for 20-25 mins or until the crust turns brown.
  • Serve with grilled meat/ salads.
