I followed the same recipe as my garlic bread and baked these braided bread. This bread is made of wheat flour and free of refined sugar too. I referred some you tube videos on how to shape them. It is very easy to shape them and you can serve these as evening snacks with tea or for breakfast. We love savory than sweet ones. So I used vegetable stuffing. You can make some sweet stuffing with coconut, tutti frutti, nuts too. For kids we can make with some chocolate stuffing too.

Notes

You can choose the stuffing as per your choice like paneer, mushroom or chicken. You can choose sweet stuffing too.

You can use 1 tsp of instant yeast instead of active dry yeast.

If the yeast is not active don't proceed further. There can be few reasons for yeast to be inactive. Yeast is very old and reaching expiry date. Quality of yeast is not good. If you add yeast to very hot water it will kill the yeast. Proofing of yeast is very important for any bread recipes.

You can add some cheese on the top of stuffing

Always allow the dough to double in size. Don't go by the timing as it will be different in different climatic conditions.
