My bread machine was literally busy everyday for the past few weeks. I use it not only for bread, also chapati dough and naan dough.
It is a perfect tool for making home-made naan, this time I modify the recipe a little, adding whole wheat flour and handful of wheat germ to make it a little healthier.
We liked the out come, and so does our guest!

This chilled green soya bean is a very simple, tasty and healthy snack, I normally prepare like 2 pounds at one go, and keep it in the fridge, we like to snack on it alot!

I am getting better with bread I guess.
Today I decided to make multigrain healthy bread, that was the whole purpose learning to make bread at home actually, to be able to make healthier bread.
Multigrain would be tougher I am sure.... I thus decided to knead the dough longer, and raise the dough at low temperature (inside the fridge) overnight. This way the yeast could work on the dough slowly and will not over ferment and make it sourish.
The result was amazing, the bread turned out so soft and taste heavenly !

I bought a bread machine recently, and I have never make any bread before, so I decided to start with the easiest... which is dinner roll, just to get a gist of bread making, and to pilot test the machine...I do not have bread flour at home, so my first dinner rolls are made from all purpose flour..
