Garlic Pumpkin Bread

I dont know that garlic and pumpkin puree works out wonder for making bread until i tried this combo at home, two days back my next door friend brought me a large whole pumpkin for her garden which i simply halved and oven roasted them to turn as a pumpkin puree also freezed some pumpkin chunks for making soups or curries furtherly..Yesterday i prepared this fabulous flavouful bread by combining homemade pumpkin puree, crushed garlic cloves, red chilly flakes and dried herbs, the final result was this super spongy,quite healthy,seriously super flavourful and wonderful bread, we couldnt stop having them with cheese spread for yesterday's snacks and for our dinner with a bowl of soup dinner, finally we completely finished the whole bread almost within a day...Everyone at home loved this colourful,eye pleasing garlic flavoured pumpkin bread..

2cups All purpose flour
1cup Wheat flour
1/2cup Pumpkin puree
1/2tsp Chilly flakes
5nos Garlic cloves (crushed)
3tbsp Olive Oil
1tbsp Active dry yeast
1tbsp Dry parsley leaves
1tsp Salt
1/2tsp Sugar
1/4cup Luke warm water

Stir in the active dry yeast,salt,sugar in luke warm water, keep aside until the yeast turns foamy, meanwhile take the all purpose flour,wheatflour,pumpkin puree,crushed garlic cloves,dry parsley leaves,chilly flakes in a bowl, add gradually the foamy yeast, water,olive oil and turn as a soft dough..arrange this dough in a greased bowl and keep in warm place for two hours until the dough double their volume..

Preheat the oven to 350F and arrange a baking sheet over a baking tray..Punch down the doubled dough, knead for a while with enough flour..grease a loaf pan,arrange the dough in the greased loaf mould, bake for 15minutes in middle rack, keep the oven temperature to 300F and bake for 20minutes until they crust turns brown..Keep aside and let them cool completely..

Slice as u desire and enjoy with any spread..
