garlic-bread-recipe 
   I always wanted to bake garlic bread at home just like we get in Pizza hut. I love only the garlic bread we get there than the other versions. So today I tried it. Its great snack for kids. Aj likes this as well.You can also make a simpler version of this by spreading a store bought garlic cheese spread over baguette slices or even with our white bread slices. Great finger food for the evenings and play times. This recipe is adapted from Suhaina’s blog.
   Now after 2-3 weeks, Aj will get holidays and he will be at home for a month. All mom’s out there will know how it would be when the kids are at home. They wants us to play with them all the time. Aj also not exception. We play few board games, carom and his most favourite – playing cards. When it is weekends, me Aj and vj all three will be playing cards and both of them will even forget their meals if they are into the game.

Notes
  • This gives a medium sized bread loaf. You can bake the bread in advance.
  • Do not use garlic more as it will give strong garlic smell. Also do not skip the herb. Use butter, cheese as mentioned.
  • You can use garlic powder available in stores.
  • If you want spiciness, use red chilli flakes in the spread.
  • I used dried herbs, so used less.
  • Use sharp knife for cutting the bread. Also make sure to cool down completely before cutting.
  • You can also slice out separately and grill for 5-8 minutes to get a crispy garlic toast.

  16. Sprinkle a little chilli powder on the butter to spike it up.

    You can also toast the slices with the buttered side on top to give it a little crunch.

  41. Hi, All recipes given in your blog is very good. We tried many cake recipes exactly as per your measurements, results were really perfect and amazing. Only problem we found in cake was on the top of the cake, we found cracks. Other wise, taste, softness etc were too good.

    We could not find ice cream receipes.Do you have the same?

    Also please clarify whether can we use dry yeast in place of instant yeast while making bread as per above recipe.

    thanks/thanu

    1. Its similar to maida / all purpose flour , but more refined and bleached. You can replace with maida also.

  44. Hi Raks,

    Can we substitute instant yeast with Active dry yeast? What is the difference..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For active dry yeast, use 1 tblsp, dissolve it in lukewarm milk with sugar and keep aside for 5 mins. It will froth and come up. So proceed with it to knead dough. Hope its clear
