- All purpose flour : 450 grams.
- Egg : 1
- Butter : 45 grams (10% of Flour)
- Milk : 175 grams
- Sugar : 20 grams.
- Yeast : 7 grams
- Water as needed.
- Grated cheese.
Combine all the ingredients for the dough except the water. Knead it. It will most probably be dry as the amount of wet ingredients is less. Add a tablespoon of water at a time and keep kneading. The dough should be soft, bouncy and must pass the window pane test. Let it rest till it doubles in size.
Roll the dough into a thin rectangle about 3-4 mm in thickness. Sprinkle cheese and seasoning all over the rectangle but leave 2 inches as a border. Roll into a log. Cut it horizontally. Braid it. There are a lot of videos in youtube for reference.
Put it into a buttered bread pan. Second rise till the dough has grown and is soft but holds an impression when very lovingly pushed.
Glaze with milk. Bake at 180C in a preheated over for about 35 minutes.
Let it cool before slicing. But this is a luxury you may not have with a hungry family screaming at you.
