1 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoon virgin olive oil
15 gm dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
Combine warm water, sugar, salt, yeast and olive oil. Mix it well. Then add 2 cups of flour to make a soft dough. Knead in some additional flour so that dough is soft and not sticky.
Now place the kneaded dough in a greased bowl and cover it. Let it rise until doubled in size.
Now make balls or loaf shape by punching down the dough and place them on a greased cookie sheet. Cover for 20 minutes until it rises.
Now bake the loaf in a pre-heated oven for 35 minutes, until golden brown.
Now mix egg whites and one tablespoon water in a small bowl. Take out the bread and brush this egg mix on it. Bake again for more 5 minutes for that shiny effect. Enjoy this side dish recipe with pastas.
