Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. 3 and ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  2. 2 teaspoons instant dry yeast
  3. 1 and ½ teaspoons salt
  4. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  5. 1 cup and 2-4 tablespoons warm water
  6. 3 tablespoons white sesame seeds
  7. Milk wash


  1. Whisk together flour and salt in a large bowl. Add olive oil, mix well. Add yeast to 1 cup warm water. Stir so that it dissolves.
  2. Add to flour mix. Knead for 6- 8 minutes. Keep adding more water till you get a soft and supple dough.
  3. Transfer dough to an oiled bowl. Turn around so that it is coated with oil all over. Cover with a kitchen towel and keep in a warm place to rise for 1 and ½ hour or until double.
  4. Transfer dough to a floured counter. Divide into three equal parts. Roll out each part into a 20 inch long rope slightly tapering at the edges. Braid the pieces, pinch the ends together and tuck them under. Place on the greased baking tray.
  5. Cover and keep for 1 ½ hours or until double in size.
  6. To prepare milk wash, boil ¼ cup milk, 1 tablespoon butter,2 teaspoon sugar, ¼ teaspoon salt. Boil together for 5 minutes on low heat
  7. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Brush the braid with milk wash and sprinkle sesame seeds.
  8. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes or till it is golden brown. Tent with a foil if the top is browning too fast. Cool in the rack. Slice when cold.
