No Knead yeast breads are something like batter breads. You use yeast and let them rise and bake, but don't have to knead and give it a second and third rise. No shaping of the dough is required either. This probably makes a new baker of yeast goods jump at it. I have tried not many No-Knead recipes so far. I tried 'No-Knead Focaccia' which came out very good. So did the 'batter bread' even though it came out a bit crumbly for my taste. When I came across this recipe, I thought of giving it a try. I didn't use the spices the original recipe used, but came up with my own. We all liked it a lot and do read the Notes to see the changes suggested.
Adapted very slightly from here.
Active Dry Yeast - 2 1/4 tsp
Water - 1 cup warm
Sugar - 1 TBSP
Salt - 1/2 tsp (See Notes)
Yogurt - 4 TBSP or 1/4 cup
Olive Oil - 2 TBSP
All purpose flour - 2 1/4 cup
Green Onions - 2 chopped fine
Green Chillies - 2 chopped fine (Or you could use about 1 tsp of red chilli flakes)
Cilantro - Chopped about 1 TBSP
In a bowl, take warm water. Add Sugar to it. Stir and sprinkle yeast on the top. Let it get foamy. Add Oil, salt, yogurt and slowly start adding all purpose flour. Stir with a wooden spoon. When all the flour has been stirred in, add chopped onions, chillies and cilantro. Stir one more time. Dough will be very sticky. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise for about 40 minutes or till doubled in volume.
The salt mentioned in the recipe could be increased to 3/4 tsp. Since I was experimenting, I did not use too many green chillies. That can be increased to about 4 too.
