    I racked my brains for a smart introduction to this Pull-Apart Bread Loaf. And then I thought – why bother? One look at the pictures and you wouldn’t care what I thought about this recipe because you’ve already fallen in love with it!

    I’m right, right? I didn’t expect to end up with such an amazingly spongy and delicious bread loaf that came apart so easily. It is fun eating a pull-apart bread. You don’t have to cut it up. Each piece tears off easily – and hence the name.     (more…)

    As long as we are talking about bread baking, you must know that it does not get any easier than these soft petit pains au lait rolls.

    These french milk bread rolls are pleasantly soft and spongy and an absolute delight to devour. Traditionally studded with pearl sugar, these rolls are meant to be had at breakfast or with chilled milk. However, if your taste buds call for something spicy, you can easy swap out the sugar for your favorite choice of herbs and spices, while retaining the dough and the process of shaping the rolls. The typical “tooth mark” on these rolls give them a differently gorgeous look.

    Although you can rely on all purpose flour to give you a spongy texture that we all love, it is recommended that you try to get your hands on some strong bread flour. And if you want an alternative, vital wheat gluten can help with the gluten content in the dough, thus making it elastic and spongy. Then again – if you are just starting out – don’t even bother. I used neither bread flour nor VWG, and I still found these rolls to be great.   (more…)

    Some recipes are borrowed, some passed down and some – like the recipe for these no-knead garlic rolls – are invented by my over imaginative brain.

    There is a lot of thinking about food going on in my head all the time. I’ve been branded an obsessive foodie by many. And why should I be embarrassed about it? Yes – I may not seem normal to my next door neighbor; who cannot fathom why my eyes pop out when I smell beautiful onions caramelizing or when I see mint leaves growing right outside in the garden like there’s no tomorrow! The truth is – my brain goes into a recipe overdrive every time I see or get my hands on fresh ingredients.

    One day, I got myself some fresh, subtly pungent garlic cloves and plucked green chilies from my chili pot… and got to thinking about all the classic possibilities I could make with 2 most commonly used ingredients. I had made numerous variations of the garlic bread before. The one thing all of them involved was – KNEADING. While there isn’t anything wrong with getting some elbow grease, wouldn’t we all like to do away with the kneading a few times? After a few different attempts, I finally made some super soft rolls with a dough that barely involved any kneading!

    Once again, my love for Garlic translates into a recipe created exclusively for carbaholics such as myself.

    These cheesy garlic rolls are my take on the regular dinner rolls and garlic bread. After the highly popular how to cook garlic bread post, I bring you yet another bread recipe made from scratch. Only this time, they are in the form of dinner rolls. And flavored with garlic and cheese and mixed herbs.

    The garlic flavor in these rolls (or buns, as I like to call them) aren’t too overpowering. It is subtle, yet distinct. The cheese is just right – it enhances the flavor and provides another layer of texture. And overall, these rolls are just fluffy and delightful. The concept of making these rolls is pretty similar to most bread recipes; and yet – you’ll find that a few changes in the dough can give you a wonderfully fragrant bread!   (more…)
