BASIC WHOLE WHEAT BREAD - ATTA BREAD

Happy new year to all my Grand Veg Kitchen blog readers and visitors!
“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.”
― Edith Lovejoy Pierce
The house calendars changed to 2014…wishing our dear ones all the best for 2014…..and my Grand Veg Kitchen all set to bake ….Starting the New Year with baking a bread loaf for our morning breakfast…..
I bake this whole wheat bread at home as my family loves it and we are all saved from the whole wheat breads available in the market which are loaded with refined flours, acid regulators, emulsifiers, preservatives etc.
So here comes from my Grand Veg Kitchen a fresh Whole Wheat Bread for a fresh day of New Year Morning breakfast…..

BASIC WHOLE WHEAT BREAD - ATTA BREAD
Ingredients:
2 ½  Cups Whole Wheat Flour (Atta )
2 Tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Salt
2 Tbsp Olive Oil (Canola or Sunflower oil can be used)
1 ½  tsp Instant Yeast
1 cup Water
Method:
Take water in a small vessel and dissolve sugar. Just warm the water and add instant yeast and mix well. Cover and let it rest for 10-15 minutes and it turns frothy.

In the mean time sieve wheat flour and salt into a bowl. Add olive oil and mix well. Add the yeast mixture frothed and knead well for 10 minutes. The dough should be soft and not sticky.
Now shape it into a loaf shape and place it in a greased or foil wrapped loaf tin.

Cover it with a damp cloth and keep it in a warm place for an hour. During summers the dough raises just in an hour and it takes nearly two hours to rise during the winters.

Once the dough is raised to nearly double its size bake it in a preheated oven at 190 degree C for 20 minutes on center rack  or till the bread turns golden brown.
Take it out from the oven after five minutes and remove it from the tin and keep on the rack to cool.

Brush the top with butter and slice it with a sharp knife only once its cooled completely.



The texture is dense and crumbly due to whole wheat.

We enjoyed the slices with a spread of Chutney Powder and honey.
Enjoy it just like that or with the spread of your choice.

Tips:
This is just basic bread and you can try adding different flours, herbs, spices, nuts of your choice.
If you are confident about the instant yeast you use then you can directly add it to the flour and mix well and continue kneading with warm water with sugar dissolved.
