    This is our dinner!!
    1/2 cup atta + 1/4 cup each of maida & flax seed powder
    1 tsp fresh yeast
    1 tsp honey
    a pinch of salt
    2 tsp olive oil
    Warm water
    Unbelievably soft!!
    Before baking brush with milk+butter mixture, sprinkle 1 tbsp FS powder again. You can see it on the top.

    I was worried that flax seed powder may add to the density & added 1/4 cup maida. But, it is so soft & tasty, plain, as it is!!

    wow, chithmam, i am going to try it soon. did you prove it for the same duration of regular breads.

    i think flaxseed being a egg substitute should make it porous..wild guess..i find cakes are softer and spongier with flax seed powder....

    and that me being the blessing for fil, i think it the reverse, what if he was the old school no onions, no garlic, madi..he has been very very adjusting on the food front and very appreciative..regarding other things, well i can't ask for perfect people..like perfect recipes..

    Shan, since it was just 1 cup, the proving time was just an hour. I allowed it to prove & went for my walk. Came back &transferred to the New kutti loaf pan. Second proving was about 45 mtes. Then baked at 180 C for 20 mtes. But I started at 3.30 itself since I wanted to go for walk at 4!!

    dearest aunty,

    made aviyal to go with kothamalli thogayl...the addition of carrots instead of coconut does give a beautiful color and taste. hubby was surprised that aviyal cold yaste this good without more coconut.
    thanks a ton for these tips...and am waiting to try veg-dhal masala...
    love,
    vini
