Masala stuffed Buns

Bread Bowl

This bread bowl ticks off another item on my bucket list or should I say bread list. I have been meaning to make a bread bowl but somehow never got to it. Like we know, Bake-a-thon is made just to correct such situations. The best part of it was I got the daughter to have…

Spicy Coriander Bread

It is December and so it is Bake-a-thon which is a legitimate justifiable reason to turn on the oven every couple of days to post baked dishes every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I wanted to have a proper theme and everything but the family is in a super non co-operative mode and so I could…

Tahinli Ekmek | Turkish Tahini Bread – #BreadBakers

After a month long dedication to dosas and pancakes, I am back to my first love – breads, more specifically the yeast based bread. A friend gifted me a bottle of tahini and that got me excited to use it in a bread before all of it goes down the hummus route. So when I…
