Paneer Masala Bread

 For the week 3 of Blogging Marathon, I chose to bake yeasted breads and my regular readers will know that this blog has an overdose of savoury breads:). Here is a simple bread filled with paneer masala and has a distinct Indian flavour to it.
Recipe Source: Easy Cooking
All purpose flour                3 cups
Luke warm water               1 cup
Instant yeast                       1 1/2 tsp
Sugar                                  1 tsp
Salt                                      1 1/2 tsp
Olive oil                                 1/3 cup
Paneer                                   200 gms
Amchur powder                     1tsp
Red chilli powder                    1/2 tsp
Garam masala                        1 tsp
Salt                                           To taste
Juice of 1 lemon
For the dough 
Add yeast and sugar to the water. Keep it aside in a warm place for 10-15 minutes for it to froth up
Sieve the flour and salt together 
Make a well in the center of the flour and add the yeast water mixture to this flour,Knead it into a dough which will be sticky.
Now add  the oil to this and knead it for 10 minutes so that it becomes soft and pliable
Grease a wide mouth bowl with oil place this dough in it, cover it loosely and let it rest in a warm place for 45-60 minutes and let the dough double in volume
For the filling
Combine crumbled paneer,turmeric powder,dry mango powder,red Chili powder,garam masala,salt and lime juice.Mix gently  and keep it aside.
Once the dough has doubled, take it out! roll the dough into a rectangle
Spread the paneer filling evenly all over the rectangle. Press it out gently
Now start rolling the rectangle on the shorter side into a tight log
Place it in a prepared pan, cover it with a slightly damp kitchen towel. Let it rest for one hour so that it doubles again
Preheat the oven to 230 C for 10 minutes and then reduce it to 220c
Make shallow cuts slightly on the prepared bread
Brush the whole top surface evenly with milk or egg wash
Bake it for 30 minutes to get that perfectly baked paneer bread
Once done , transfer this to a cooling rack, let it cool completely before you make slices
Serve with some spicy dip or sauce
