  • Orange zest or lemon zest 1 tbsp
  • Any oil 1 tbsp

METHOD

In a bowl add warm water, yeast and sugar. Mix well, cover and keep aside. In ten minutes it will froth. If it doesnt froth, yeast is not good quality and your bread won’t rise, so make sure yeast should be of good quality.

In a large bowl add wheat flour, butter and salt, mix it. Add yeast and mix well.

Add the orange juice , orange zest and try to gather dough. Add milk little at a time and gather everything into a sticky dough.

Add oil and knead for ten minutes. Cover the dough and keep it to rise for an hour or two.

Grease a bread tin wih butter or place a parchment paper, the bread won’t stick to the bottom.

After the dough rises, beat it down. Knead it for ten minutes and roll it and place it in the greased bread tin. Wrap a cling film or cover the dough for half an hour.

Once the dough rises again after half an hour, brush butter on top of the bread.

Add sesame seeds and brush milk on top of bread. This will give a nice colour to the bread.

Preheat oven for ten minutes. Bake the bread dough for 20 to 25 minutes at 180°C in baking mode.

Once the bread is baked keep it to cool on a wire rack.

Slice it with a serrated knife and enjoy with tea.
