Easy sourdough bread recipe with starter, whole wheat [Indian garlic bread]

Bread is very much a part of our dining tables. It has invaded our breakfast and snack times. but when you BUY bread, you are not actually buying a pav roti, but a potpourri of unhealthy ingredients. so why not bake a healthy bread at home with our homegrown yeast. Ravneet Bhalla loves her sourdough starter, which is almost 2.5 years old. Let's learn how to bake a healthy whole wheat bread at home, which gets 9/10 for being a healthier alternative to store-bought junk. join ravneet bhalla in this healthy hamesha journey.

you will need a fresh sourdough starter - about 1/4 cup of it. if you want to learn how to make your own yeast at home, ask me in comments.
add 1/4 cup of water and mix both starter and water. i love to add methi or fenugreek powder along with flaxmeal to my chapatis, parathas, and bread dough because they keep a check on your blood sugar levels post-meal.  if you don't want to add both ingredients, that wont make any difference to the taste or texture of our indian sourdough bread. now add salt. you may add 1 tsp of jaggery powder here. now it's time to stir in whole wheat flour or gehu ka atta. this will be a loose dough..add 1 tbsp of oil to the dough and knead just like you knead a chapati dough. bread making need not be difficult.
swirl the dough a bit to give it a round shape. let it sit in a bowl until it doubles. if you want to bake the bread the same day, keep the dough at room temperature. but if you can wait, then it's better to shift it to the refrigerator for the first rise. you can keep this sourdough in fridge for 24 hours.  but I chose to bake the easy atta bread without yeast the same day. so it sat on the counter undisturbed for 3-4 hours and rose taller and taller. look at the proofed dough.
let's proceed to the second part in bread making. spread the dough with hands gently or using a rolling pin into a round or rectangular shape. i made two loaves so gave one round and another rectangular shape.
spread a layer of homemade herbed garlic butter and then top with fresh chopped coriander leaves for an extra dose of flavor.
shape the dough into a bread of the size of your bread tin. i bake breads in airfryer. so I use this glassware for that purpose. it bakes mini loaves.
spread a layer of the garlic cheese on top of the bread and let it rest covered at room temperature. when it rises after 2 hours, give it a milk wash and bake sourdough bread in airfryer at 180 deg c for 40 minutes. please don't forget to preheat airfryer to 200deg c for 5 min.
check after 30 minutes and then give it a milk wash once again. once the atta bread is baked, immediately cover with a moist cloth for at least 30 minutes. slice the atta bread upon cooling and enjoy the garlic bread as is or with kimchi . i have shared the recipe of indian kimchi on the channel already. do gve it a try. give ravneet bhalla a thumbs up if you think I deserve it for all the hard work I put in to bring healthy recipes to like is a kind of motivation to do better. take care until we meet next.

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.
