Multigrain Bread

Its quite a long, i prepared bread at home..I want to prepared something different with flours from my pantry..i came across ragi flour, soya flour and whole wheat flour so i thought of making out bread with all these flours..I never ever tried bread with ragi and soya flour and i was initially little bit confused whether they turn out prefect or not..anyhow i want to give a try and started preparing as i do usually while preparing breads..Rachel of Tangerine's Kitchen announced BBD#20 - Multigrain Bread, i wanted to come up with something different, coz i have already prepared many breads with oats, which i have completely skipped in this bread..This bread tastes very delicious and healthy with plenty of healthy stuffs in it..Soya flour is made from whole soybeans that have been roasted and ground. Soya is a stable food with great nutritional value. Soyabean flour contains high protein and is usually mixed in with whole grain flours in many recipes. Use soyabean flour in home cooking for a delicious and highly nutritious dishes also to get a little more soya in the diet.Raagi is a kind of millet. It contain high protein. Ragi flour has advantages of slow digestibility and high calcium content. High-protein biscuits made with ragi flour. Ragi flour is used in the preparation of rotis, dosa, porridge, and other foods. Ragi flour is also known as Kurakkan flour in Karnataka, India.Wheat flour is high in nutrients. Because of its fiber properties, wheat flour is the first choice of the health conscious people...So needless to say that this bread is quite healthy, prefect for breakfast with jams or with nutella...Also sending to JFI-Ragi hosted by Madhuram..




2cups Whole wheat flour
1cup Ragi Flour
1cup Soya flour
2tsp Active dry yeast
1tsp Sugar
1tsp Salt
3tbsp Olive oil
1/2cup Luke Warm Milk
1/2cup Luke warm water

Mix together the luke warm water and luke warm milk, add the active dry yeast, sugar and salt, let them sit together for 5 minutes until the yeast turns foamy..

In a large vessel , add the whole wheat flour, ragi flour, soya flour, sieve the flours twice...pour the foamy yeast, water (if needed) and olive oil, knead them as soft and stiff dough..grease a vessel with a few drops of oilve oil and place the dough..arrange them in a warm place until the dough double their volume for two hours..

Knead again after for few minutes and roll them as small round balls and place the dough balls over a baking sheet...let it sit for an hour in a warm place..Preheat the oven at 350F and arrange the baking tray in the middle rack and bake for 35 minutes...Let it cool for atleast few minutes...Serve them with butter, jam or else with chocolate spread..

Healthy bread for a healthy breakfast!!!!
