Monggo Bread

This is one of the breads that I like a lot, that is why I tried baking it and it is good, so I thought of sharing it with you, have fun baking.

Ingredients for the dough:
5 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup fresh milk or whole milk (warm)
3 teaspoons yeast
3 eggs 
3/4 cup melted butter

Ingredients for the filling:
2 cups monggo boiled and mashed
2 cups evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter

In a pan combine all the ingredients then cook over medium heat until it become like a jam ( make sure its not soupy. Set aside for filling later.
Meanwhile here is how to prepare the dough .

1. Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk for 10 minutes ( put the yeast and leave it for 10 minutes then mix)
2. Mix all the dry ingredients, make a well in the middle, then crack the eggs and beat it there.

3. Add the butter and the milk with dissolved yeast.

 4. Mix well, then knead until  the dough is formed put it in the container or big bowl and let rise for 2 hours by covering it with a damp cloth.

 5. After 2 hours knead the dough for a while then slice it, make sure each slice should be around 80 grams to make one serving of bread.

 6. Flatten each portion and put the monggo filling and roll it, make sure each end is well sealed by pressing it.

 7. Then twist it and form it like a knot ( like the picture below) and let it rise for 45 minutes. Brush with beaten egg for a good texture.

8. Preheat the oven for 20 minutes then  bake the bread for 15 minutes or until done at 180C.
9. Serve it with a smile :-)
