Garlic Bread

  • Flour : 1½ cup
  • Instant yeast : ¾ Tbsp
  • Milk : ¼ cup
  • Water : ¼ cup
  • Olive oil / melted butter : 3 Tbsp 
  • Sesame seeds : 2 Tsp
  • Sugar : 1.5 Tbsp
  • Salt : 1 Tsp

For spread :
  • Salted butter : 2 to 3 Tbsp
  • Parmesan cheese : 2 Tbsp
  • Grated garlic : 1 Tsp
  • Fresh cilantro : 2 Tbsp

For the spread, mix together the salted butter, cheese, grated garlic and cilantro well. Keep it aside.

Mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl. Lightly heat the milk and water and add it into the flour. Mix along with oil/ butter. Combine them all and knead it well till it turns soft. Cover it with a damp cloth and keep it aside for 1 hr or till it doubles in size. When it double's, punch down the dough and again knead it for a few minutes and shape it into a loaf. Transfer it into a baking tin and keep it for another 15 minutes. Brush the top portion of the loaf with milk and sprinkle sesame seeds. Pre-heat the oven to 180° C and bake it for 20 minutes. (It took 30 minutes for me). Then remove it from the oven. After 30 minutes, slice the bread and fill it with the cheese garlic spread. Then, preheat the oven to 200° C and bake it for 5 to 10 minutes.
