- Maida 1 kg ( 7½ cups)
- Yeast 2 Tbsp
- Sugar 4 Tbsp
- Salt 2 Tsp
- Oil 4 Tbsp
- Water 4 cup
Transfer all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour oil and water into it. Knead it till it becomes soft and has combined well. Rub the dough with a little oil. Cover and keep it aside for 1 hr or till it doubles in size. Then, punch down the dough in a well floured surface and again knead it for another couple of mins. Transfer it to a greased bread tin and keep it for 30 mins (without shaking the tin). Egg wash the top portion. Bake it for 1hr 20 mins at 220° C.
I halved the recipe and it took around 35 to 40 mins to me.
