I love making breads at home. I think those homemade breads taste way better than the store bought ones. And also you can keep track of the ingredients that goes into that. The advantage of homemade bread is, it is so cheap to make at home. With the money you buy a packet of bread at shop, you can make a bunch of loafs at home.
I love experimenting with breads, so far i have made a pure whole wheat bread and white bread. I always wanted to make a multi grain bread, so i experimented couple weeks back and it was really good.
I added oats, ragi flour and wheat flour in this. I will surely make a more healthy version by adding lots of grains in the bread soon. I hope you will love this one and let me know what you think.
