Oat flour ( grounded instant oats powder) - 1 cup

Method : 

1) Mix wheat, oats, chiroti rava with milk and water and knead it lightly so that chiroti rava gets enough moisture evenly and kept it aside for 1 hour. (Autolyse) . Alternatively, allow chiroti rava to soak in water for 15 mins and mix all the flour and prepare dough. It should be a sticky dough but not too loose and too sticky. Use 1 to 2 tablespoons water if needed)

2) Add honey, salt and sourdough starter and knead it to incorporate well and develop gluten ( took around 20 to 25 mins kneading) to form a smooth dough. Use olive oil to grease ur hand in intervals.

3) Tranfser the dough to a greased bowl and cover it and put in fridge for overnight proofing. min of 8 hrs)

4) Take out the dough from fridge, allow it to come to room temperature, let it raise until doubled ( 2 to 3 hrs ) . 

5) flatten the dough gently and incorporate seeds while shaping the dough through folding technique all over and transfer to loaf pan and allow for second proof at room temperature until doubles in size ( 2 hrs )

6) bake the bread at 200 degree celsius for 40 to 45 mins or until done.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
