After baking the buns last time, I was a little disappointed because of the crust. And somehow I could not gather courage to play with the yeast again. I had bought a zucchini almost a week ago. This was the first time I bought it as it is not so common here and I was browsing for a recipe. I came upon this Shilpa’s(aayis recipes) zucchini bread and I was tempted to try this. Indeed, bread baking is certainly addictive. So I went ahead with the recipe and it came out really good this time.It tasted delicious and was quite soft too. I just made minor changes to the recipe.
Heat a little water. It should be lukewarm. Add yeast, sugar and salt and leave for 10 minutes for frothing. Meanwhile combine rest of the ingredients. Add the yeast mixture and knead into a smooth dough. Use more water or flour if necessary. Grease a big vessel with oil and keep the dough for rising for 2 hours. Then press the dough and knead again and then keep in a oven proof dish giving the dough a desired shape. Let it rise for another 30 minutes. I sprinkled some sesame seeds on it. Its purely optional.
Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes or till baked.
