Flax seeds & Whole Wheat Bread

We humans are on a constant urge of having a good life free from ailments .Being from a health conscious generation we are in constant search for things that help us to maintain our health fit and fine. Gradually healthy dry fruits like walnuts, almonds are our snacks, normal tea is now been replaced with green tea  ,brown rice gained extreme popularity and baking is preferred over deep frying .Flax seeds has just got famous due to its qualities to reduce cholesterol when consumed regularly in little proportions and as its rich in omega 3 fatty acids. The markets are flooded with Flax seeds and they are now used in cakes, parathas breads etc.I recently received a small pouch of flax seeds from my mom who was of full praises for it as its pack with nutrition. I was very tempted to use it in my breads .I incorporated the flax seeds in my usual bread and hence comes out from my Grand Veg kitchen…..
Flax seeds & Whole Wheat Bread

1 Cup Whole wheat flour (atta)
1 1/2 Cup All purpose flour (maida)
1/3rd Cup - Flax seeds
1 1/2 tsp- Instant yeast
1 tsp –Salt
2 Tbsp- Sugar
2 Tbsp –Olive oil /Sunflower/Canola oil
1 Cup Water

Note: As I use instant yeast only one rising is required.
If you want to make the bread very soft then change the proportion of the flours -use whole wheat 1/2 cup and all purpose flour 2cups. Also the proportion of flax seeds can be further reduced to suit your palate or to 2 tablespoons.I had used this proportion to bake a bread for one of our friends and the results were awesome !!!


1. 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.
2. In the meanwhile mix sieve together wheat flour, all purpose flour, and salt. Now add olive oil, flax seeds and mix well.
3. Add the yeast mixture frothed and knead well for 5-10 minutes. The dough should be soft and not sticky.
4. Now shape it into a loaf shape and place it in a greased & flour dusted or foil wrapped loaf tin.
5. Cover it with a damp cloth and keep it in a warm place for an hour or till the dough is raised to nearly double its size. During summers the dough raises just in an hour and it takes nearly two hours to rise during the winters.
6. 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. Smear a little butter on top with a brush or with your finger tips. Slice it with a sharp knife only once its cooled completely.

We enjoyed the slices topped with tomato ketchup with our morning tea.
