My mom brought a bread machine in NZ a while ago and since then she’s been just ga-ga about it and become all earthy by baking a new kind of bread loaf every weekend. This Bawi bride ofcourse doesn’t have a bread machine, but it inspired me to get some yeast and try making my own yummy bread – Focaccia – that I could brag about.
I also had some ready-made seekh kebabs lying at home that I didn’t know what to do with so the Seekh Kebab Focaccia was born – and oh what a success it was!
To get 12 big chunks you will need:
2 cups of lukewarm water or whey (left-over from making the Gher-nu-Ricotta)
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1.5 tbsp sugar to feed the yeast
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon cracked pepper
4 and 3/4 cups bread flour (I used about 2 cups maida and 2 cups whole wheat roti flour to get a bread with a browny colour and a more earthy flavour)
2 ready seekh kebabs or cooked sausages
A handful of fresh herbs or coriander
Caution – make this only when you have a whole evening to waste
