Cheese & Herbed Sundried Tomato Focaccia

Focaccia, this flat Italian bread is definitely our family favourite since ever i tried at home. You can make fantastic sandwiches with this focaccia bread though this bread can be served as an accompaniment along with a bowl of soup or salads. I brought some Sicilian sun dried tomatoes all the way from Sicily after our summer vacation, as i have seen that Sicilian cant live without this fantastic sundried beauties. Back home i was waiting to make an easy bread with it, immediately i gathered all the ingredients to bake this fantastic Italian focaccia with those flavourful sun dried tomatoes. Trust me, this focaccia bread was our moist favourite, this bread came out extremely aromatic and absolutely spongy with loads of cheese and herbs.

Pain d'épi is known as the wheat stalk bread which calls for an impressive twist on the classic French baguette. We get these Pain d'épi very much easily in every bakeries here, obviously i never had a chance to bake these wheat stalk shaped bread at home. But finally it happened, and i baked Pain d'épi at home.Epi de Blé is the name given to the bread which looks like wheat stalk or the ears of wheat. This bread is often baked during special holidays and celebrations, this bread calls for an easy preparation and sounds almost like French baguette. Apart from cutting the dough to resemble as much as like wheat stalk, this bread calls for easy ingredients.

Aloo Paneer Kebab/Potato Paneer Kebab

Potato and paneer in kebabs, cant ask more rite. Both these two ingredients are our family favourite and they have their important place in our weekly menu. Though i dont like to get paneer from stores, Indian stores are loaded with this Indian cheese. Store bought cheeses are really handy when we dont have enough time to prepare paneer cheese at home. Last week, when we went to Indian store, i couldnt resist to pick a packet of paneer. After preparing a paneer curry, there were some leftover paneer cubes sitting in my fridge. Since i want to give a second life, i went on preparing this ultimate aloo paneer kebabs.
