Most of the time, I baked sweet bread with filling but this week trying a savory ones made with my trusted bread recipe. . .
This Braided Masala Bread is a small buttery bread, braided and stuffed with onion, green chili and cilantro. The filling compliments this lovely loaf perfectly. It is braided from three strand of dough, a similar fashion how you braid your hair.
If you have a mixer or bread machine, the process is even easier because these gadget knead the bread for you. But if you don't have them, no worries, kneading with your hands is perfect and a good workout too.
Since I opt for buttery dough and stuffing it with onion, it becomes more sticky and hard to handle, Adding more flour is required in order to make it easier to shape. Actually you can shape into any shape you like but I want my bread in different shape. Despite it turns out not so pretty ( poor braiding) but the taste was *so* good. .
Braided Masala Bread is an awesome bread! It takes a bit of extra time to assemble but the bread itself is very soft and baked beautifully. .
