SOFT MILK BREAD WITH ROUX


This is a lovely bread ,very,very soft . The

texture is super awesome .

I made the roux ( flour cooked with water) the

previous night .

Mixed the flour in the morning,the dough

proved quick,due to the wild summer .

Breakfast was loved by all !

I want to specify that I used ghee not butter .

Trial turned successful!

Flour measurements may vary in each one’s

method of kneading.Next time I will post the

dough photos . Morning hours I want to finish

everything fast,so failed to take photos of the

dough .

Moving on to the recipe
