How to Prepare this Scrumptious Bread

Follow these simple steps to create your very own whole wheat bread with dried fruits and kurichi.

Step 1: Mixing the Dough

In a large mixing bowl, combine the strong flour, whole wheat flour, milk, water, sugar, butter, dry yeast, and salt. Mix these ingredients well to form a dough.

Step 2: Adding Dried Fruits and Walnuts

Once the dough is well-mixed, add in a generous amount of raisins, cranberries, and toasted walnuts. Incorporate these dried fruits and nuts into the dough, ensuring an even distribution.

Step 3: Dividing the Dough

Divide the dough into 8 equal parts and shape each portion into a ball. Cover them with a damp cloth and let them rest for 15 minutes. This step is essential for the dough to rise properly.

Step 4: Wrapping with Cream Cheese

 After the resting period, roll each dough ball again. Then, wrap each ball around a portion of cream cheese. This will create a delightful surprise in the center of your bread.

Step 5: Second Rise

Place the wrapped dough balls on a baking sheet and let them rise for a second time. Preheat your oven to 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) and allow the dough to rise for 30 minutes. During this time, the dough should swell to about 1.5 times its original size.

Step 6: Preparing for Baking

1. Preheat your oven to 210 degrees Celsius (410 degrees Fahrenheit).

2. Sprinkle some flour evenly over the dough.

3. Using a sharp knife, make cross-pattern incisions on the dough.

4. Place a small amount of butter on the incisions.

Step 7: Baking the Bread

1. Lightly spray the dough with water.

2. Bake the bread in the preheated oven at 210°C (410°F) for 10 minutes.

3. After the initial 10 minutes, reduce the oven temperature to 200°C (392°F) and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until the bread is beautifully golden and fully baked.

Step 8: Enjoy!

Once the bread is done baking, remove it from the oven and let it cool. Slice it open to reveal the delightful surprise of cream cheese and enjoy!
