Chaat Bread: Savory Bread With Sweet And Spicy Chutney

Written By Srimathi Mani on Wednesday, June 6, 2012 | 12:48 PM


Remember, one of my new year's resolution was to learn to bake bread? Well! I have been working at it by baking bread often and learning a few techniques here and there. Since the Cilantro onion bread, I had not felt that the breads I made were blog worthy. But not today, I used a basic bread recipe and decided to make something different with it. With the leftover green and sweet chutney, I decided to create my chaat bread. It was a very crazy idea, but I wanted to give it a try. My daughter was my sous chef and shared my excitement in baking the chaat bread. It was her idea to add onions as toppings in swirls to create a pattern on the top. The bread scored big with my in-house bread critics. I have learned that if by the end of the day more than 3/4 of the bread disappears and there are requests for seconds then it must be blog worthy. For me, it was an interesting bread because, half the bread tasted spicy and the other tasted sweet and it kind of balanced off well.


Gadgets:

Loaf Pan
Kitchen aid or hand held mixer with dough hook or the perfect gadgets your hands
Measuring Cups and Spoons
Spatula
Bowl
Oven
Oven Safe Bowl
Whisk
Damp Towel


Ingredients:

Bread Flour or All Purpose Flour  or Combo of both - 3 cups
Warm Water - 1cup
Warm Milk - 1/2 cup
Yeast - 1 Tbsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Honey - 3 Tbsp
Oil - 1 1/2 Tbsp plus extra 1 tbsp
Melted butter - 1/2 tsp
Sweet Chutney - 3 tbsp (Thick)
Green Chutney - 3 tbsp ( Thick)
Red Onion Slices - 3 to 4 


Preparation:

1. In the mixing bowl add water, milk yeast and honey. Give it a mix and let it stand for 10 minutes. (Notable Tip: Before adding honey, spread some oil in the spoon and then add honey, it will come out clean)

2. In another bowl combine flour and salt well and set aside.

3. Add 1/2 cup of flour to the liquid mix and mix well. Attach the dough hook and knead the dough for 5 minutes until they come together, but still sticky.

4. Add oil and melted butter to a bowl and spread well. Add the dough and coat it well. Cover with a damp towel and allow to rest in a warm area for 45 minutes or until the dough doubles.

5. Divide the dough into 3 portions roughly. In a loaf pan layer one portion of the dough and spread.

6. Spread the green chutney evenly, add the second portion of the dough and cover the green chutney. Add the sweet chutney and spread.

7.Top with the third portion of the dough.


8. Heat the oven to 375 degree F.


9. Add onion slices evenly, cover with damp towel and allow to rest for 10 minutes. 



10. Place in the oven along with a cup of warm water. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the top browns evenly and the corners form a crust.






11. Enjoy warm chaat bread out of the oven. Forget waiting for it to cool down, they taste amazing fresh off the oven.
