This is my first ever bread that i baked. As the name suggests, it is WHOLE WHEAT bread, no maida or all purpose flour in it. Very simple and easy recipe with the ingredients easily available at your home.Points to remember:

    Take a big bowl and put 1 and 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour. Add salt, yeast, honey, olive oil and water. Mix well.

    Now add the rest of the whole wheat flour. Mix well and transfer it on to the kitchen table or a big plate where you can knead with your hands and make a smooth dough. Knead the mixture for approximately 10 - 12 minutes, till everything is combined properly and the dough has become soft and smooth.

    If you think that the dough is sticking, add little bit of flour on the table top and knead again. Once the dough is kneaded properly transfer it to the bowl by rubbing little olive oil all over the dough.

    Cover it with a towel and keep it in a warm area in your kitchen. Keep this aside for 1 to 2 hours or till the dough gets doubled. (as i used instant yeast, the dough doubled in approximately 1 hour)

    Once it is doubled, knead once again using your hands for about 2 - 3 minutes. Cut it into half and knead well each one of them and make it into a smooth dough. If you have a bread shaped baking tray, grease it and place the dough on it.

    If you don't have one (like me), place them on the greased tray that you have, side by side. (as shown in the pic). Brush some olive oil on top of both the loafs, put some sesame seeds (optional) and cover it with a towel. Keep this aside again for an hour. It will again rise.

    Once it is risen, brush the top of each loafs with the egg yolk. But it is optional. Place it in a microwave oven - convection mode - 200 degree Celsius for 25 to 30 minutes.

    When the bread loafs are cooked and the top of it turns its colour, take off from the oven and leave it aside for cooling. After some time, transfer it on a wire rack and let it cool for sometime.

    Cut it into slices and serve.
