Ingredients of no-knead bread sourdough India

1 cup- 240ml

1 /2cup- whole wheat flour

2 tbsp- oat flour

1 tbsp- whole wheat starter

1/4 tsp salt + little extra for topping

1/4 cup  water

1.5_2 tbsp- extra virgin olive oil

veggies of choice

Mix water with oil, salt, golden syrup, whole wheat starter, and oats. Set aside for 10 minutes.

Add starter and whole wheat flour. Mix and set aside for 10 minutes.

Then gather into dough and brush with oil.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 6-10 hours. Slow proofing will release flavors and prevent it from becoming sour.

Then after bulk fermentation, remove from the refrigerator. Bring the dough to room temperature.

Let it double. Took mine 2 hours to double after removal from the fridge.

Punch gently. Roll out gently like a roti.

Fold into a round ball and gently press in a greased baking tin.

Poke with knuckles or fingers or thumb.

Decorate with onions, tomatooes, basil, herbs, olives, berries, cherries, or veggies of choice (smeared in little oil, salt, oregano, red chilli flakes).

Top the bread with sesame seeds Then spread the veggies.

Let it rise for 45-60 minutes.

Preheat oven, airfryer, otg to 200 deg c for 10 minutes.

Brush with oil.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

Brush with oil again and bake for 5 minutes more.

This will help keep it sourless.  Additionally, you can use the discard wherever you wish to and make flatbreads, focaccia, pizza, crackers, kulcha, balzama bread with it, The options are endless.
