How to make Stuffed Foccacia

  1. I used my food processor to make the dough. Let us first make the sponge. In a wide bowl, take flour and yeast together, to this add warm water, mix well until all the flour is wet. Cover and let it sit for 45 minutes.
  2. After 45 minutes, the dough will be all bubbly. In the food processor bowl, take all purpose flour and whole wheat flour, yeast, salt. Add cumin seeds and pepper powder. Run the processor for a minute to mix well.
  3. To this flour mix add the sponge and slowly add water and start kneading a soft dough. Add water little by little, you might not need all of the water. Add oil towards the end to get smooth and a soft dough.
  4. Remove the soft dough onto a well-greased bowl. Cover and let it rise for about 90 minutes or until it is doubled in volume.
  5. While the dough is resting, let us make the filling. Wash and cube all the vegetables. Heat a pan with oil, add onions and saute until it turns translucent. Next add tomatoes along with red chili powder and coriander powder.
  6. Let it cook until tomatoes turn soft. Next add the chopped vegetables and 1/2 a cup of water. Add salt, cover and cook until the vegetables are done and the liquid is almost evaporated. Let it cool completely before used for stuffing.
  7. To make the focaccia, remove the doubled up dough onto a well-floured kneading surface. Punch out the extra air. Divide the dough into two portions.
  8. I used an 8 inch removable-bottom pan for making this. But I would suggest using a large rectangle tray, that will make the bread a bit thin, since I baked in a cake mould, it came out like a big mounted cake like bread.
  9. Grease the baking tray well with olive oil. Roll out the dough into a circle that fits the bake-pan, press down the rolled dough onto it. Brush the dough liberally with the chili oil.
  10. Spread the filling on top of the rolled dough. Now roll the other portion of dough into a round, fitting the pan and cover the filling with the rolled dough. Brsuh the top agin with chili-oil and make dimples on the dough.
  11. Let the dough sit for another 30 minutes. While the dough is rising, preheat the oven to 180 degree centigrade. Bake the bread for 30-35 minutes. Let it sit in the pan for 5 minutes.
  12. Remove the bread on to a cooling rack and let it cool completely. Slice and serve a little warm. The bread does not need any accompaniment, as it has got all the spices required.
  13. You can serve it with a mild soup or with a cold drink to make it a complete meal.
