    Place the prepared bread on a greased tray.The recipe says to make 2 loaves but I prefer dividing it into three and making three average sized loaves. That is up to your preference!

    These can be served as is, with a chutney of choice, or as an accompaniment with any meal or soup. I feel ketchup is the best combination.
