I was a little nervous about this bread at first as it is a No knead bread and there was no proofing of the yeast as that usually is the first step to baking a bread .
Once putting the bread in the oven , I kept on checking the bread for the first few minutes & as soon as I saw it get all puffed up I was relieved .
Now I can say that this is a full proof focaccia recipe .
I can proudly say making this bread could not be easier! Bring together your dough, place it in an oiled baking sheet , let the dough rise and before baking sprinkle with salt, herbs, spices, or whatever you like 🙂
3 cup all purpose flour (maida)
1 and 1/4 cup of warm water
2 and 1/2 tea spoon of instant yeast (1/4OZ)
4 tea spoon sugar
1/4 cup of olive oil + two table spoon for drizzle
1 and 1/2 tea spoon salt
1 tea spoon mixed Italian herbs
1/2 tea spoon chilly flakes
1 big onion, thinly sliced ( optional )
Sliced Jalapeños pepper ( optional )
Sea salt to sprinkle
How To Proceed
# Take a bowl, add 1 and 1/4cup of warm water. Make sure the water should not be hot, it should be just warm, as hot water would kill your yeast. Now add yeast, sugar, salt, oil and flour
# Now generously coat the palm of your hands with oil and lift the sticky dough and place it on 11″*9″ greased pan. If you do not have big tray, divide the dough in two part and set it in two small pan.
# Chop the onion thinly and spread it over the bread, arrange jalapenos here and there. Sprinkle sea salt.
# Bake it on 200*c /380 *f for 20-25 minutes in a preheated oven or till it turns light brown on top.
Want to make this bread with whole wheat flour? Substitute 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) whole wheat flour for 1 1/2 cups of the all-purpose flour.
*To make cheese-stuffed bread, add 1 cup of your favorite cheese, diced or crumbled, to the dough once it’s been kneaded for 60 seconds. Crumbled feta, diced cheddar or provolone, and coarsely grated Parmesan are all good choices.
* you can even Add Pizza Dough Flavor for over-the-top flavor, and/or cheese powder to turn it into cheese bread.
