Blogging Marathon# 52: Week 4/ Day 1
Theme: Bookmarked Recipes
Dish: Semolina Bread from Sandhya’s My Cooking Journey
My theme for the final week of this month’s marathon is ‘bookmarked recipes’. It is almost impossible to pick just 3 dishes from my ever growing list of bookmarks, so I narrowed my search to just breads. After the month long mega baking marathon from April, I have many breads and other baked goodies bookmarked — I thought this will be the beginning of many I tried from those.
Semolina bread has been on my to-try list for a very long time. But most of the recipes I saw, needed a covered cloche or a special baking utensil. Also most of them looked very crusty and chewy. Since my family prefers soft, sandwich bread I never got around to try any of the recipes.
But when I saw Sandhya’s post with the beautifully sliced soft bread, I knew this was the recipe to try. I had semolina flour in the pantry (one of my many impulse buys) and that is all you basically need along with some yeast, sugar, salt and extra virgin olive oil. Semolina flour can be subbed with fine sooji available in Indian groceries but the coloe of the bread would be a little pale.
