Garlic-Cilantro Cheese Pull Apart Bread

Do I need a reason to bake a bread? NO:-) but i keep finiding some reason though!When Aparna of My Diverse kitchen asked if any of us were interested in baking along with her every month of 2013, i jumped in saying YES with many others and the group WE KNEAD TO BAKE was formed. I have bookmarked many of the recipes from Aparna's blog and I, love the pictures on her blog am happy to be mentored by her!!

For the Dough:
 Warm milk   1/2 cup
 sugar              1tsp
Active dry yeast    2tsp
All purpose flour  2 3/4 cups
Salt                        1tsp
Butter                    2 tbsp
Garlic paste          1tsp
Milk                      3/4 cup
Melted butter      1 tbsp
Oregano             3 tsp
Cilantro             3tbsp
Chilli flakes      3 tsp
Cheddar Cheese 1/2 cup

Add sugar and yeast to the warm milk and keep it aside to froth up
In a wide bowl mix all purpose flour, salt, butter and garlic paste and milk
Now add the yeast mixture to this  and knead it into a soft dough
Transfer this to a lightly floored wooden board and  knead it for 10 minutes till the dough becomes pliable
Transfer this to a well oiled bowl. Cover it and let it rest for 1 hr so that it becomes double in volume
Now knock out the air and roll the dough into a rectangle
Brush it with the melted butter
Spread the cilanto, oregano chilli flakes nd cheese on this evenly
Cut it lenghtwise into 3 equal portions
Stack one on top of the other
Now divide this into 6 equal poetions
Take A 9" by 5" loaf pan and stack these slices one on another resting the the pan on the shorter side so that you can stack it like a column
Cover it with a kitchen towel and let it rest for 45 minutes for it to double again
Preheat the oven to 180C
Bake it for 25-30 minutes or till the crust starts to brown
Serve Warm
Savoury breads are something which my daughter looks forward to always and she loved it
Thank Aparna for the wonderful recipe
Happy to be part of WE KNEAD TO BAKE!!!!
