Again, oatmeal does not disappoint. It's such a relief to find the healthiest of grains giving me the best results in bread making. This is a softer bread than my previous bread varieties - no yeast ragi bread and whole wheat bread no yeast.
To enhance flavor, I have included garlic - so it is garlic wheat-oats bread without yeast.
I also added fermented urad dal and oat meal batter, which is optional for this recipe. It was merely an experiment, and I am not sure if it did make any difference to the recipe.
Let's turn to the recipe now:
Atta Oats Bread Ingredients
1/2 cup- oats
1/2 cup- atta (whole wheat flour)
1/2 tsp- sugar
salt as per taste
1/2 tsp- baking soda
whey to knead dough (should be soft, but not too sticky) - whey is the leftover water when you make paneer - if you do not have whey, add 1 tbsp of curd and knead dough with milk
Roasted & dried onion-ginger-garlic powder for aroma (optional)
2 tbp- urad dal fermented (optional)
1 tbsp- oil/ghee
No yeast Bread Procedure
|atta oats bread|
- Mix all dry ingredients.
- Add oil/ghee. Rub with hands.
- Next add fermented urad dal if you want to.
- Now add whey or curd.
- Knead into a soft dough for 5-8 minutes- should not be too sticky.
- Keep aside in a warm place for an hour.
- Cover with a wet cloth.
- After an hour, punch the dough in the center - then roll out from the edges.
- Knead the dough again - do not overdo, as this may stop the proofing process.
- Now keep aside covered with a wet cloth in a warm place - if you are baking in an oven/microwave, then grease a baking pan and keep the dough in that.
- I kept the no yeast bread dough in microwave.
- Let it rest overnight.
- By morning, it would have risen.
- Take a tawa (iron skillet), place a steel plate over it.
- Now take a stand and place above the plate.
- Place the baking bowl with the dough above the stand.
- Cover everything with a big vessel. I used patila (used for boiling milk).
- Bake on a low flame for 30-40 minutes - may take longer or little shorter.
- Insert a knife to see if it is done.
- Allow it to cool down.
- Cut into slices and enjoy.
- These measurements would give you a mini oat wheat bread loaf. You may increase the amount for a bigger one.
