Multigrain Bread With Caramalized Onion n Garlic

0
Nothing is better than the aroma which comes from the oven while baking fresh bread. This aroma is just incredible and when it is the bread, baked with caramelized onions, roasted garlic n fresh chives. Caramelized onion and roasted garlic just do a magic to any food; whether they are bread, soups or any rice preparation especially pulao or biryani.This time I thought to add fresh chives to get more flavours and colours. These kinds of masala breads always attract me to try baking them.And baking has always been a comfort zone for me.Kneading the dough, rising of it and baking it in the oven gives me pleasure
I have made this bread with multigrain atta/flour which contains wheat, gram, soybean and bengal gram.I know that Bread with all-purpose flour has better taste n texture and the one baked with this multigrain atta/flour is little denser n does not rise much but very healthy instead
I use this bread to make sandwich with masala paneer which is relished wholeheartedly in my family
