Stuffed Garlic Bread Sticks with Whole Wheat Flour

I always try to make healthier version of my family’s favorite food items at home. In any case we eat out quite frequently and then I can’t guarantee about the health factor, but when I am making the same things at home I always try to make a healthier version😊 Me and my little girl are fan of Dominos Garlic Bread Sticks with their dip so, I make them often at home but completely my style😉 Mine are made with 100% whole wheat flour and yet so flavorful and yum😋 Try it to believe it🤗

Ingredients:

For Bread Dough:

Makes 3 breads

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp instant yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt(or adjust to taste)
  • 2 tbsp Garlic(crushed or paste)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder (optional)
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • Warm water as needed
  • 2 tbsp melted butter for brushing
  • 2 tbsp corn meal

For Stuffing:

  • 1/4 cup boiled corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup fine chopped bell peppers
  • 3/4 cup grated cheese of your choice
  • Salt to taste
  • Crushed black pepper to taste

For Seasoning Mix:

  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp crushed black pepper

  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme

For Cheese Dip:

  • 1/8 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup grated or fine chopped cheese or 3-4 torn cheese slices
  • 1 tsp milk powder(optional)

Process:

  • In a large mixing bowl, take flour, yeast, sugar and salt and mix well then add the dried herbs and garlic powder and mix well 

  • Add garlic paste as well and mixIMG20170815184324
  • Warm the milk and add 1/4 cup butter to it, heat little so the butter is melted. Mix wellIMG20170815184611
  • Add the warm milk and butter mixture to the flour, make sure the milk is just light warm and not hot otherwise it will kill the yeastIMG20170815184807
  • Start kneading the dough, add warm water little by little to make a soft smooth dough.IMG20170815185823
  • The dough should be kneaded for a minimum of 10 minutes to get a soft spongy bread, after kneading grease a big bowl and keep the dough in it, covered for proofing until it doubles in size. It can take about 1-2 hours 

  • While the dough is getting proofed prepare the veggies and the spice mix as below

Spice Mix:

  • Mix all the ingredients mentioned under the spice mix category and add them to a mortar and pestle and combine them throughout
  • It can be stored in an airtight jar and used as required

Cheese Dip:

  • Heat some water in a pan and put the milk in a bowl over it, make sure the water doesn’t touch the milk bowl 

  • Add milk powder and cheese to it and let it melt slowly over the double boiler, keep on stirring to get a smooth dipIMG20170815210812
  • You can also do it in Microwave, mix all ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and melt in short spurts of 20 seconds then 10 seconds and keep on mixing after each spurt, do it till you get silky even textured dip.

Baking the Bread:

  • Once the dough is doubled in size, knock out the air and divide it in 3 equal parts. Make balls and keep aside covered for 10 minutes 

  • Mix the chopped peppers and boiled corn, add salt and pepper as per your taste, keep aside
  • Spread the corn meal on the work surface, take one dough ball and work on it to make a flat round shape about 1/2 inch thick 

  • Brush some melted butter on it and sprinkle the prepared spice mix 

  • Put the prepared vegetables on one side of the round dough and cover them with grated cheese and then fold the other half over it 

  • Transfer it to the parchment lined tray or rack carefully(I prefer baking pizza and other flat breads on rack) and just mark the cuts to define sticks it will be cut thoroughly after bakingIMG20170815203259
  • Brush butter generously over the top and sprinkle the spice mix over itIMG20170815203431
  • Now bake it in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 20-25 minutes or till the top is goldenIMG20170815210019
  • Take out and cut the sticks and finally serve hot 🤗IMG20170815211332

  1. Which brand instant yeast you use. I have active dry yeast. which i think needs to be added to the water with sugar before adding it to the flour

    1. My current batch is Prime Instant Yeast, yes the Active Dry Yeast needs to be added to warm water with some sugar for proofing. Use just mild warm water which is the same temprature as your blood(as in when you put a finger in water it doesnt feel hot to you). Hot water can kill yeast so be careful.

      Hope this helps 😊
