Making Eggless Scallion Garlic and Cheese Bread
Eggs are used in this bread recipe, many of you asked on Instagram for egg free bread recipe. I have not tried that yet, but I guess like other bread recipes it is safe to omit the egg. The texture will be slightly different though.
So next time you are in the mood for a savoury snack or bread for dinner, give this scallion, garlic and cheese bread a try!
To make Scallion bread, start by taking a mixing bowl and add flour, castor sugar in it. Then add active yeast, salt, and butter in it.
After that mix all the ingredients well and crack an egg in the bowl. Mix well and when the texture becomes crumbly, add milk in the bowl.
Now, apply some oil in hands and mix the dough. Cover the dough with a cloth and rest for 30 mins or until it doubles in size.
After that, take a small bowl and add butter, scallion and black pepper in it.
After that, add garlic paste and mix the paste well.
Now, take out the dough on a flat wooden board. Prior to placing the dough on it, spread some flour on the wooden board so that the dough doesn’t stick to it.
Now, with the fingers press the dough inwardly and then fold it 2-3 times. With a rolling pin give the dough a rectangular shape.
When the dough is in the desired rectangular shape, use a knife and cut the dough in two equal parts.
Add scallion paste on one side of the dough and cover it with the other side of the dough. Spread some cheese on top of the dough.
Now, roll the dough like this.
Cut it into parts and shape them into balls. Keep them aside.
Take a baking tray and cover the bottom of the baking tray with scallion paste and put the scallion balls on top of it.
Wrap it in plastic and keep it aside for some time. After 10-12 minutes take out the plastic and brush some scallion paste on the bread.
Top the balls with some chopped scallions, cheese, and some butter-scallion paste. Bake at 180*c for 18 minutes. After 18 minutes, take the baking tray out and serve the scallion bread hot.
