imageGarlic Knots- Delicious soft bread packed with garlic flavor and shaped like a knot.  These garlic knots have been prepared with 80% Aashirvad multigrain flour and 20% refined flour. You can replace multigrain flour with whole wheat flour.

My son loves garlic bread. So, I keep on experimenting with healthy breads packed with garlic. These Garlic Knots complement pasta dishes very well.

You can try other bread recipes like Whole Wheat Bread-Sticks (With Rosemary), Whole-Wheat Garlic Rolls, Multigrain Stuffed Braided Bread, Whole-Wheat Bread, Whole-Wheat Rosemary Garlic Bread.

Yields : 8 Garlic Knots

INGREDIENTS

  • 100 Gms. Whole Wheat Flour
  • 25 Gms. Refined Flour
  • 1 Tsp Dry Yeast
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 5 Gms. plus 10 Gms. Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Chopped Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Bread Seasoning
  • 1/2 Tbsp Chilli Flakes
  • 1/2 Tsp Mixed Herbs Seasoning (Optional)
  • 2 Tbsp Butter/ Olive Oil ( For Kneading)
  • 1 Tbsp Butter (For Brushing)
  • 90 Ml. Water

METHOD

FOR DOUGH:

  1. Dissolve yeast along with 5 gms. sugar in 60 ml. lukewarm water and set it aside for 6-8 minutes till a layer of froth appears on top. Always cover the yeast bowl or put it at a dark place.
  2. Transfer multigrain flour, refined flour, salt, remaining sugar and yeast mixture to a big bowl.
  3. Bring all ingredients together and add olive oil/butter.
  4. Knead a soft dough using above ingredients and remaining water. You might have to add more water, depending upon the quality of flour.
  5. Transfer dough to clean kitchen slab for further kneading.
  6. Stretch the dough back and forth using palm. Repeat this process for 10-15 minutes. Gently poke the dough with your finger. If indentation fills quickly, it is an indication that dough has been sufficiently kneaded.
  7. Transfer dough to a greased bowl and cover it with a warm cloth/cling foil. Greasing a bowl will ensure that dough does not stick to its surface while removing.
  8. Keep it at a warm place for dough to rise and double. It will take 1.5- 2 hours to double. Time will vary depending upon the warmth of place where dough is kept. You can put it inside a cupboard or microwave.
  9. Once dough is doubled, knock it to remove gas bubbles formed by yeast during rising process.
  10. Add chopped garlic, garlic bread seasoning, mixed herbs seasoning and chilli flakes. Mix by kneading dough a bit.
  11. Transfer dough to a greased bowl for second rise. Wait for it to double.
  12. Again, knock it to remove gas bubbles formed by yeast during rising process.
  13. Dough is ready to be shaped.

FOR SHAPING

  1. Divide dough into 8 equal parts. I used a kitchen scale for dividing the dough into equal portions so that all garlic knot pieces can be of same size.
  2. Place one portion on a flat surface and roll it with hands. Then just tie a simple knot with it. Roll should be of a length between 6-8 inches,
  3. Repeat with other portions and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  4. Place the tray in a warm place and let garlic knots double in size.
  5. Brush them with milk and place the tray in oven.
  6. Bake garlic knots in a preheated oven at 180°C for 18-20 minutes.
  7. Brush them with melted butter and sprinkle mixed herbs seasoning.
  8. Transfer to a platter and serve them hot.
