100% Whole Wheat Masala Bread


Have you ever tried baking your own bread. It may feel like a big task; but if you like baking you’ve got to try this. You need just hand full of ingredients and you are all set for baking your own bread. Even more interesting is that making wholewheat bread is not big of a task.

The original recipe was posted here-

Baking is my passion. I try to include healthy ingredients in my bakes so that it benefits my family and I have lot of friends that I gift these healthy bakes too.

This time I tried my hands on 100% Wholewheat Masala Bread and it was a success.

This masala bread has goodness of wholewheat and familiar flavors from our spice box. A basic wholewheat bread basically has 7 basic ingredients.

And I have added the rest of the masala as per my taste. The bread has a subtle taste of garlic and a hit of chili, the turmeric gives a nice yellow color.

If you are new to bread baking then you should give my post a read where I share how to make basic white bread plus tips for a successful bread baking.

Directions to make 100% Wholewheat Bread-


3 cups whole wheat flour/atta

1 tsp instant yeast

2 tsp gluten powder

3-4 tsp olive oil

3/4 tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

250 ml lukewarm water to knead the dough (use as per requirement)

4 tbsp milk powder (optional)

for the masala-

2 tbsp butter

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

1&1/2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp garam masala

1 tsp chili flakes


** The key to a soft bread is to knead it for at least 5-7 min. The dough should be elastic but not sticky.

** Make sure to pinch otherwise the bread may break when slicing.

Pin it here for later-

This bread has soft slices, slightly heavy than a normal maida bread with a firm exterior; but certainly healthy and tasty.
