Green Garlic Bread


When Vaishali came down for the BM#50, she was kind enough to bring the green Garlic for all of us from Ahmedabad. The bunches were neatly packed for each individual and was so perfectly packet that it stayed fresh up to 2 weeks. I must say she took great care in packing these things for us. Thanks Vaishali. But for you, I wouldn’t have tasted these at all.
Thanks Vaishali for carefully packing this and bringing it
So I had the green garlic and now the hunt for recipes started. By then Valli had announced the BM, and what I felt that using it the bread baking would do justice to the green garlic that I had safely guarded till now. So tried this bread, with the finely chopped green garlic, green chillies and the bread was very delicious.
All-purpose flour
3 ½ cup
Instant Yeast
2 ¼ tsp
1 -11/4 cup
Green Garlic
1 bunch  chopped finely
Green chillies
Sesame seeds
Olive oil

Chop the greens and the garlic bulbs of the green garlic finely
Chop the green chillies finely too
In the bowl of the stand mixer add the flour, gluten, salt, sugar and yeast. Mix everything well
Now add the chopped green garlic, green chilli, water and oil and start kneading in MINIMUM for 1 minute.
When the hook has gathered all the dough turn the speed to ONE and let it knead the dough for 7 minutes
Take out the soft pliable dough and transfer it to a well-greased bowl
Cover it and let it rest in a cool place for 1 hr for it to double
After an hour, take it out, punch down, roll the dough into a rectangle, and shape this into an oblong roll to fit the prepared greased bread mould
Cover it loosely and again let it rest till it doubles
Mine took 45 minutes
Preheat the oven to 200 C
Apply milk evenly over the surface to get a nice brown crust. You can use egg wash too
Sprinkle some sesame seeds on the top
Bake it for 30-40 minutes or until done (Tap and see if it sounds hollow)
Transfer this to a wire rack to cool
Let it cool completely

Apply butter and eat a slice or make a sandwich with fresh veggies. It tastes heavenly
