Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

  • In a separate bowl, sift together 4 1/2 cups flour, salt, curry powder and turmeric. Make a well in the center of flour mixture. Pour in yeast mixture and 1/2 cup clarified butter. Stir in the remaining 4 cups flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until a stiff dough is formed. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.

  • Grease a bowl with remaining clarified butter, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with butter. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 4 hours.

  • After 4 hours punch dough down, flip over and let rise for 2 more hours.

  • Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into two equal pieces and form into loaves. Place the loaves into two lightly greased 9x5 inch loaf pans. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Bake dough in preheated oven for 45 to 60 minutes, until loaves are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped.

I really liked this bread although bf didn't so I don't get to make it again.:o( He just didn't like the taste--guess he doesn't like curry or turmeric? I made it into rolls and used my breadmaker to do the dough. The rising times are very long--wasn't sure if that was for a reason or not. It can take that long for me if I just leave the dough out but if I put it in the oven with the light on it doubles in about 1/2 hour. I didn't use clarified butter--just regular margarine and they were fine. The baking times seem long but it did take about 1/2 hour at 400 for my rolls to bake. I halved the recipe and made 8 rolls. Thanks for sharing! Read More
