Baking bread at home is also fun and kinda rejuvenating.Though I have baked baked bread / buns at home it was some long back may be two years before.So last week I decided to try my hand on yeast and tried masala spinach buns which was a massive it.We has it for dinner with mixed vegetable bhaji.

This week after making beetroot dhokla I had beetroot puree and decided to go with this beetroot bread.It was super tasty and we had it breakfast with egg toast. I used a mix of wheat and maida but you can use either any one flour or a mix of both.
