Multigrain Masala Bread

Whole-grain whole wheat flour is a full-flavored flour containing vitamins, minerals and protein. Whole-grain whole wheat flour is more nutritious than refined white flour, although white flour may, in a process called food fortification, have some micro nutrients lost in processing added back to the white flour. Fortified white flour does not, however, contain the macro-nutrients of the wheat's bran and germ like whole-grain flour does, and is notably lacking in fiber. Whole grain is a good source of calcium, iron, fiber, and other minerals like selenium.

Often, whole wheat flour is not the main ingredient in baked goods, as it may add a certain "heaviness" that prevents them from rising as high as white flours. So that we need to add some another nutritious flours in this Bread..So adding Ragi, Sorghum and Oats in this spicy Masala Bread and named it Multigrain Masala Bread....Sounds hottt ;) Its a change that you enjoy Bread loafs in bit spicy flavor too...I enjoyed this freshly baked Masala Bread tonight with some cream cheese spread on the top of the bread slice and I can't tell you how much soft and tasty this bread was. What else can you make with this spicy and soft Masala bread?? I like to serve it simply with some cheese spreads or by making simple sandwich with some veggies or with mustard sauce. I was enjoying the whole preparation hours when I was making this bread, Since Today weather was not at my side, It was so cloudy weather today, and in a cloudy weather it is bit tough to get a nice result with bread...For proving the Bread loaf, warm place is must...So I preheated the oven for just 2 minutes and the it was quite warm...Placed the Bread Bowl in the oven and it risen up very nicely in half an hour...That result is very important for any bread baking process. I love the look of this Bread...It looks so colorful with spices and with some sprinkled oats...So combo was amazing and hit. So next, when you wants to try your hand in any bread recipe, this will be healthy and easy too...Check out the step by step recipe below and enjoyyy the healthiness with baking :)
