This bread 🥖 recipe so good your husband won’t be able to 👉keep his HANDS OFF IT 😛😛 it will also keep your kids busy kneading ,shaping , rolling, hammering for hourssss… and if your market, like ours has run out of brown flour and yeast 🙀because we are all #stayathome baking. I am posting a great alternative recipe… that we made today 👆 Heat oven to 180c Dissolve 2 tablespoons of yeast into 1/2 a cup of warm water. Let it proof for 10 mins In a large bowl mix 2 cups hot water 1/3 cup of oil ( I use olive) 3 tablespoons of sugar 1 tablespoon of salt Then add in 3 cups of any flour of your choice along with the risen/ proofed yeast( it should be big and foamy) .. I have used all purpose , brown , white , and a mix of all three flours .. they all work. Once combined , add in another 3 1/2 cups of flour. You will know when your bread is ready to knead. So, Go ahead and knead it. I keep adding flour till it is not sticky and wet… in case it needs more. If you’ve got kids, this is a great toy! I let them make all sorts of shapes and you can bake it any way you like. I roll ours out in three parts 9×12” and then roll it up. Then , bake for 45 mins. I like my bread slightly under baked as it’s more chewy. Now, if you don’t have yeast or regular flour then…. in a large bowl combine 1 can (330ml) of beer 2 tablespoons olive oil (or any veg oil) 2 teaspoons of salt 2 tablespoons brown sugar 650 grams of self raising flour Mix, then knead, then bake for 25-30 mins at 180-200 degrees Celsius. This is a much easier recipe. Not as healthy! but very quick . and easy also if you aren’t used to working with yeast. And if you haven’t checked out the @phoolversha link in my bio pls do to help feed displaced daily wage earners, slum families in Mumbai. Every bit feeds ! 🙏❤️❤️

Neena Gupta baked an orange cake, here’s how you can bake one too


  • 2 tbsp – Yeast
  • 2.5 cups – Warm water
  • 1/3 cup – Oil (preferably olive oil)
  • 3 tbsp – Sugar
  • 1 tbsp – Salt
  • 6.5 cups – Flour (opt for whole wheat flour)


*Preheat the oven to 180-degree Celsius.

*In a small bowl add activated yeast and 1/2 cup warm water. Cover and let it sit for 10 minutes.

*Next, in a large bowl take 2 cups of hot water and mix olive oil along with sugar and salt.

You can also make carrot cake like Janhvi Kapoor; try this recipe

*To this, add three full cups of whole wheat flour and a bit of all-purpose flour (to make it softer). It is now time to add the risen yeast; make sure it is big and foamy.

*Once the yeast is added, add another 3.5 cups of flour and keep kneading the dough. (Add extra flour in case the dough is sticky and wet.)

*Give it the shape of your choice.

*Put it in the microwave for 45 minutes at 180-degree Celsius.
