Ingredients to make Focaccia Bread

  • 4 1/2 cups of maida
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 packets yeast(7 gms each)
  • 1 1/2 Cups Warm water
  • 1 tbsp honey or brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup oilve oil
  • For the topping: 1 tomato sliced, handful of black olives(pitted), sun dried tomaotes, fennel seeds, parsley, dried rosemary or fresh herbs.

How to make Focaccia Bread

  1. Mix Maida and Salt in wide pan. In a Deep glass bowl mis yeast, warm water and honey , till the yeast dissolves completely. Let it rest for 15 minutes The mixture should be frothy. If the mixture does not turn frothy, DO NOT use.
  2. Mix the yeast mixture, maida mixture and olive oil and knead well. Knead till the dough bounces back.
  3. Oil the insides of the bowl as well the top surface of the dough with olive oil, so that it doesnt stick to the vessel. Let it rest in a deep glass bowl for 45 minutes.
  4. Prepare the toppings - mix the tomato, sun dried tomotoes, olives, fennel seeds, herbs, salt and pepper with olive oil and let them rest for the time the dough is resting( 45 minutes). This allows the toppings to marinate and adds flavour.
  5. After 45 minutes, the dough would have doubled in size. Take it out of the glass bowl and knead some more ona flat surface.
  6. Arrange the dough in flat glass baking dishes, keeing the height to not more than one inch.put the toppings on it.
  7. Let this rest for 1 1/2 hours. The dough should rise up more increasing its height in the dish to one and a half inches.
  8. Bake in a pre heated oven for 20 minutes or till the sides turn bown. The bread should sound hollow, once taken tapped and taken out from the oven.
  9. The process and ingredients should make two dishes as shown in the picture.

My Tip:

The Water should be absolutely lukewarm. Neither too hot nor too cold. This is a flat bread . So don't put too much of the dough in the glass dish to bake.
