“Bread – like real love- took time, cultivation, strong loving hands and patience. It lived, rising and growing to fruition only under the most perfect circumstances”. Melissa Hill.
As you all know I started my experiment with yeast last week. Remember those beautiful blueberry compote doughnuts I shared with you last week? I know!! I want to bake a second batch again too. So with the success of those doughnuts, I figured it was time for me to put the yeast to more practice and work on it again before I lost hang of it. This time though I knew I wanted something savory.
Apparently baking is an addiction! Second round with yeast and totally in love with it. Having so much fun with this coriander mint chutney braided bread and I hope you guys will too.
As most you readers know by now I always prefer savory over sweets and the thought of baking my own bread was a dream! So I put my fear and trepidation aside, dusted my apron and got the dreaded beast, yeast out. Turns out making this coriander mint chutney braided bread was super easy and not at all as scary as I had imagined.
Are you new to yeast and baking breads too? Well hello!! Welcome and thanks for joining me. Now follow me, put aside those lame ass fears, tell yourself “its just some yeast” and lets get down to it. If you are looking for more inspiration and help, I suggest taking a look at the Doughnut post. I have pretty much explained the 101 on Yeast in that post.
So don’t get daunted and lets begin. I have tried to put as many step by step pics as I can in this post because obviously pictures speak louder than words. So lets finally get around to posting this epic bread . Coriander mint chutney braided bread that’s just perfect for so many things or as it is with a little extra butter smeared on its sesame crusted golden exterior. Irrevocably in Love!
Once the bread is baked, it will be golden brown with a nice crusty exterior that is studded with sesame seeds and a soft swirled inside. The spicy coriander mint chutney swirls through the bread beautifully and the aroma of garlic and extra virgin olive oil just wafts through the house while its being baked. Trust me, words aren’t enough! But the aroma of this coriander mint chutney braided bread baking will make you happy and gleeful!
