Introduction

DESIGN SHEET 1 Task - To design a bread product suitable for a religion or culture of my choice Naan Bread - There are principally two types of Indian breads which share the same characteristics in that they are flat oval and round. In Punjab and Kashmir in the north-west and in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh there are the naan-style breads. Naan bread is a leavened bread which varies from region to region and most probably from home to home according to the cooks preferred method. Yeast or sourdough method can be used; others prefer using a chemical raising agent, such as bicarbonate of soda or self raising flour. Yoghurt, however is ingredient that differentiates naans from its many Middle Eastern counterparts. It plays a part in fermenting the dough using a yoghurt fermentation. ...read more.

Middle

As the dough bakes, it scorches and puffs up to give a bread that is both crisp and soft in parts. Key points in making a successful bread - * Yeast is a living organism and as such can be destroyed if too much heat is given. * Yeast needs time, moisture, food (sugar) and warmth (37�C). It can be tested by a temperature probe or your little finger. * Bread uses yeast to rise * Strong flour contains more protein than cake flour and this is converted into gluten by kneading for atleast 10 minutes. * Bread dough is left to rise in a warm moist area * When its doubled in size, remove the cover, glaze with egg and putt any toppings on. ...read more.

Conclusion

I chose to concentrate on this particular culture and religion because I find the ingredients suitable for he Muslim religion and crops grown in Pakistan to be interesting in flavour, texture and appearance. I also chose to concentrate on the Asian and Muslims to experiment leavened bread cookery as I have only ever produced yeast risen bread products and I am interested to experience the taste and difference in cooking method. From research and bread tasting I also know that Asian style bread is popular, for example pitta bread this is because people enjoy the spices and seasonings used, so even though my product is directly suitable for Muslims and the Asian culture many other cultures will enjoy and those religions allow them to eat the ingredients of the bread. ...read more.

    Discussion: The crust has turned brown because a browning reaction occurs. The reaction called maillard reaction. It is results from amino acid in protein, reducing sugar and heat.
