Chicken Bread

This is my first attempt at making a bread. I've had this recipe for a while in my diary, just couldnt summon up the courage to try it. But today I got downright brave and made chicken bread :D
It looks difficult maybe but its really easy to do !

This recipe makes 1 large and 1 small bread.

So here goes..

Ingredients :
(For the Dough)
Flour : 4 cups
Yeast : 1 tbsp heaped
Sugar : 1 tbsp
Milk : 4 tbsp
Salt : 1/2 tsp
Egg : 1 beaten
Oil : 1/4 cup

(For the Filling)
Butter : 2 tsp
Onion : 1 medium chopped
Flour : 2 tbsp
Milk : 1 1/2 cup
Salt : to taste
Black Pepper : 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala : 1/2 tsp
Chicken : 250 gm boiled and shredded
Green Chilies : 3-4 chopped
Coriander : 1/2 bunch

Method :
(For the Dough)
Dissolve sugar and yeast in 1/2 cup of lukewarm water.

Mix everything and knead into a soft dough.

 Leave to rise for 1 hour.

Meanwhile make the filling :

 Melt butter and  saute onions till transparent.

Add flour, salt, black pepper and garam masala. cook for 1-2 minutes. Take off heat...

...than add milk. put on very low flame to thicken slightly.

 Add shredded chicken, coriander and green chilies.

Mix. Leave to cool.

To assemble the bread :

 Roll out the dough in a rough square and cut the sides diagonally with a knife.

Spread the filling in the middle.

 Now do this :D

Transfer on a baking tray (this was the most trickiest part, it got all wobbly :D, so i had to ask mum to help me with this). Brush with a beaten egg. You can sprinkle it with sesame seeds if u like.

 Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degree centigrade of 30-35 minutes

Happy Baking !
