Milk bread..

Ingredients :

Milk : 1/2 cup
Water : 1/2 cup
Active dried yeast : 1 and 1/4 teaspoon
Sugar : 2 tablespoons

Salt: 1/2 teaspoon
Plain flour: 2 and half cups ( + or - 1/2 cup)
Baking soda : 1/4 teaspoon
Unsalted butter : 2 tablespoons

Method :

Heat milk,water and sugar until sugar dissolves. Switch off the flame and wait until milk turns to lukewarm temperature then add in yeast and close with lid and wait for 10 minutes to activate the yeast.

Add in baking soda,flour,butter and salt to a big bowl, mix it once and add in milk and yeast mixture.

Knead it for 10 minutes, add in flour if you feel dough is too sticky.. ( sprinkle flour in between while kneading .. don't add all at once)

Knead again for 5 more minutes.

Drizzle oil over the dough and cover it and let it rest for 1 and 1/2 hour.

Grease the bread mould with butter and keep it ready.
By now dough will be doubled..
Punch the dough and knead again for 10 minutes.

Transfer the dough to kitchen counter, drizzle oil and use a rolling pin to roll it.. stretch and roll it like chapathi.

Now make log shape by rolling dough .. once you reach end just pinch it tightly and apple butter over it.

And let this rest for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 200 degree temperature for 10 minutes.

Keep bread mould in oven and bake it at 180 degree for 25 minutes. (Keep an eye on it,as it differs from oven to oven temperature)

Take out the bread from oven and brush the top with butter again and keep it again in oven for 3 minutes.. in this way you get brown crust.

Take it out from the oven, after 3 minutes unmould it and apply butter and if bottom is in white colour again put it in oven for 3-5 minutes upside down.

Take out the bread and let it rest it in rack for minimum 4-5 hours before slicing it..
