Recipe with Step by Step Pictures
1. Pour all the flour mentioned into a hollow bowl or on the counter directly, add there salt, sugar and yeast, and mix the dry ingredients.
2. Pour oil in the bowl, whatever the sort. The oil should only be refined.
3. Add warm and previously boiled (for necessary) water next and start kneading dough.
4. Knead the dough during 5 minutes until tender, elastic mixture. Form it into a ball and transfer in an oiled bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put aside in warm place for an hour.
5. When the dough would rise, fold it over into itself without putting much effort.
6. Roll out the dough on the counter, dusted with handful of flour, to a square sheet no more than 0,5 cm high.
7. Sprinkle the leavened sheet with fragrant filling all the way around. To do this you should previously melt and cool a butter chunk, mixed with chopped herbs dry or fresh and garlic cloves.
8. Roll the dough sheet lengthways.
9. Divide the roll into halves with sharp knife, leaving edges untouched.
10. Twist two dough stripes into a twine.
11. Press edges to seal, forming a ring or garland. Bake the garlic and herbs bread on the oiled parchment paper for about 40-45 minutes at the 180 degrees temperature. Place the dough garland in the preheated oven only.
So, garlic and herbs bread is baked!
Enjoy your meal!
