Have been baking bread for a while now using all-purpose flour, wheat flour, oats flour. The bread always turned out very soft and airy but not as airy as it would be in the store. Researching I got to know that the regular all-purpose flour doesn’t have enough protein to develop the gluten in the bread which the bread flour has. Hence decided to try bread using bread flour.
Baked a batch of bread using bread flour, it turned out just like the store bought bread. Kitchen was filled with the aroma of the bread. This brought back memories of eating bread in the local bakeries in Bangalore. Their breads are very fresh, soft and airy. The onions add a nice crunch to every bit of the bread.
