My favorite Garlic Bread with Cheese is from Yana Sizzlers Pune. I always wanted to try Garlic Bread at home. I did a lot of research for Garlic bread however I didn’t find anyone which is made from scratch. Most of the recipes for Garlic bread recipes are on ready-made bread purchased from Market.
I know basic baking of Bread. Hence decided to use my own culinary skills and my innovation. I have used my own veggies in this Cheesy Garlic Bread. I was quite content with the output as this Homemade Garlic Bread turned out great. My entire family loved them. It finished so quickly that I have decided to make it frequently.

I have used coriander leaves you could use any herb. Even Parsley, Thyme, Rosemary, Mint any herb would taste amazing. You could make more quantity and store the Garlic bread n Freezer. It should stay good for a week. However thaw it atleast one hour before eating.

First of all take 1 tbsp lukewarm water Or hot water just you can dip your finger with 2 tbsp lukewarm Milk. Mix yeast into it. Add honey and salt to the yeast mixture. Stir it with a spoon. Leave for 7 to 10 mins the yeast should get frothy. Once yeast is frothy that means your yeast is ready to be used for Herb Bread. While the yeast is getting frothy we will make our filling.
You could saute garlic, coriander leaves and chillies in butter for about a minute. Otherwise you could combine chopped garlic, coriander leaves and chillies in a bowl. Keep this mixture aside.
Take all dry ingredients (Sieve wheat flour, refined flour).
Combine milk and butter. Microwave on high power so that butter melts into the milk. Let the milk-butter mixture cool down.
Make a small well in the flour. Slowly add milk- butter mixture. Start mixing them with your finger tips. It will appear like small crumbs. Add the frothy yeast also into the dough.
Use all your stamina and knead for 15 to 20 mins. The more you knead the better results. To achive this dough you might have to add little flour and oil. But you will be tempted to add flour. Please don’t add more flour else unless you want hard bread. Slowly as you knead the dough will be smooth, soft but yet sticky. That is okay. Shape into a ball shape.
Take a vessel sightly oiled at the bottom. Place this dough into it and store in a humid place. Cover the dough with a damp cloth. Roughly after 30 to 40 mins the dough will double up in size. Again knead the dough for 4 to 5 mins. Now you could bake in 2 ways. One in small round shape and second in Bread shape.
Again keep the dough to double up roughly for 30 mins more. Cover the dough with a damp cloth. For bread shape take the doubled up dough. Divide the dough into 2 parts.
First part of the Dough: Shape into a big round ball. Take half Garlic-Chill mixture and combine into the dough. Also add grated cheese. Once all ingredients are incorporated well. If you wish you could also add grated cheese on the top of this dough. Place this dough in a box shaped pan. Remember to grease this box shaped baking pan. Bake at 220°C for about 30 mins.
Once the dough appears brown and changes texture. Your Garlic Bread is done.
Second Part of Dough: The remaining dough knead again. combine garlic-chili mixture. Do add grated cheese. When everything is combined well. Form medium sized balls. Make a small impression with your fingers in the center of the dough. Place some grated cheese in the center.
