Spicy Garlic Bread | Lasun Dabal Roti | Bread Recipes

Sour Cream Breads are wonderfully moist, dense, and inevitably delicious. The sour cream adds not only to the taste of bakery goods, it also gives them great moisture. As I am baking at a fairly regularly now, I try and rotate the kinds of breads I bake. On the weekend I baked the Cinnamon Almond Raisin Twists and a loaf of Hokkaido Milk Loaf. The milk bread disappeared so fast that I did not even get the opportunity to blog about it!!

Then yesterday I was getting started on an Oats and Wheat Loaf when I decided to use up the sour cream sitting in my refrigerator. Making a seasoned Sour Cream Bread to enjoy with soup seemed like the best idea. I used Atta (Indian Chappati Flour) in this recipe, a good table spoon of our favorite no salt seasoning, and garlic. The result: super tasty and soft bread that we have been chewing with just butter!!

21/2 cups atta (Indian Chappati Flour)
2 tsp active dry yeast
1+1 tbsp tablespoons sugar, divided
1/3 cup warm water
1 cup sour cream, at room temperature
1 tbsp garlic, chopped very fine
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp - 1 tbsp seasoning of choice (I used an organic herb and spice no salt seasoning)
11/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda

  1. Sift the flour, salt, baking soda, and seasoning together.
  2. Throw in the minced garlic and mix together.
  3. Mix 1 tbsp sugar into the warmed water, then sprinkle the yeast over it. Cover and allow to proof for at least 5 minutes.
  4. Pour the sour cream and olive oil into the proofed yeast and blend well.
  5. Pour this into the sifted flour mix. Bring together to form a soft dough.
  6. Place in an oiled dish. The dough should double in bulk in about 40 minutes.
  7. Punch down and knead the dough for about 10 minutes. 
  8. Shape into a loaf, place into a prepared loaf pan, cover and allow to rise for another 40 minutes.
  9. Bake in a preheated oven at 375F for about 35-40 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven. Cool in the loaf pan for about ten minutes, then turn out and cool on a wire rack.
Cool the bread completely before slicing. I find that refrigerating the bread overnight improves its texture and taste, and makes it easier to slice and toast. If you like this recipe, try my Sour Cream Bread with Onions and Peppers. You will love it!
