Baking this Whole wheat sundried tomato sour dough bread is an achievement for meI have been for a long time planning to bake a sour dough bread but this concept of baking with wild yeast was very alien to me. I was scared to even think about starting a starter until recently when I attended a workshop by Krumbkraft at Bangalore. She demystified the whole process and here I am baking my third boule -Whole wheat sundried tomato sourdough bread.

Whole wheat Sundried Tomato Sourdough bread

In this bread I have used 75 percent whole wheat flour and 25 percent all purpose flour with a generous amount of sun dried tomatoes, chilli flakes and basil to flavour the dough. While I was skeptical about the sour dough bread, i was sure of the flavours. The whole house was filled with the aroma while the sough was rising in the oven.
