Masala Bread

       Began this hot sunny morning with my simple Bread-Butter toast, but the fun is that the bread is freshly baked at home, not bought from store. Feeling very happy, because got the great success after making this bread, which became possible only for one of my KFB friends “Rakhee”, who had given a good suggestion to use a particular yeast named “GLORIPAN”.
            On early days when I started to try bread at home, I tried Indian naans and plain white bread .Though most of the time I achieved Success sometimes failed and at that time I was clueless why it was not baked out perfect. But using this particular yeast I am now realising that the success rate becomes 100% .This great success and admiration of my family members also inspiring me to make more and more varieties of bread.
