Cooking Time - 30 mins
Total Time - 30 mins
Serving - 2 loaves
- 5.5 to 6.5 cups of flour
- 2 tbsp oil
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp active dry yeast
- 2.5 tsp salt
- 1 cup lukewarm water
- 1 cup milk
- 4 cloves garlic – finely chopped
- 1/4th cup fresh parsley – finely chopped (4 tsp if using dried one)
- 2 tbsp fresh oregano (or 1 tsp dried)
- 8 tbsp oil
- 2 tsp rock salt
- In a stand mixer – fit a dough maker attachment. Add lukewarm water to it. Add in the sugar and yeast while sprinkling some water on them. Let it stand for a good 5 to 10 mins (till it’s foamy)
- Next, you need to mix in half of the flour, milk, salt, and melted butter. Stir well, and add the rest of the flour (keep checking the dough – it should be smooth). Run it for another 8-10 mins, dough should leave the sides of the mixer (the mix would be soft and somewhat sticky). You can even try kneading it with your hands, it is a good experience but it will take a few more mins for the dough to reach that particular texture. Once the dough is ready – divide it into two equal parts
- In a bowl, mix parsley, oregano, garlic, rock salt, and oil.
- Cut the dough into a 1” ball, dip it into the above mixture and closely layer out these pieces in an 8” X 4” greased tray. Do the same thing with the other portion of the dough. Cover these and let it rise till double in size – approx. 1 hour or so.
