If you are looking for a spicy loaf to serve up for dinner or just as a little snack to have with a warming cup of sweet chai this tomato and chilli bread is just what you are looking for. I created this recipe for Elephant Atta the leading Indian flour brand so it is fairly versatile. You can make the bread with either atta or strong bread flour depending on what you have in your cupboard.
The bread is filled with a delicious chilli and tomato achaar or pickle which I have spiced using Indian pickling spices. I would recommend reading through the recipe method because it may seem complicated at first but once you get the hang of it, it's fairly staright forward. Not only does this bread look spectacular it tastes fabulous too and it's fun to bake. If you have any left over pickle just pop it into a jar and use it as a dip or serve with your cheese board.
This quantity makes 2 wreath loaves so enjoy!
