About Tri Colour Swirl Bread Recipe:

Tri colour swirl bread is a combination of maida, spinach, and carrot. I tried this recipe on the 75th Independence day, to make the occasion memorable.

Though I could not get the exact same colors of our national flag, because I did not use any artificial color. But then I was happy to get the shades of our national flag.

My daughter was also very excited to see the tri-color bread. She loved the multicolored bread.

This proves that kids love colorful dishes and especially when it is well presented.

This bread is a great option for moms who struggle every day to feed veggies to their kids. All you need to do is blanch the palak and carrot and keep the puree ready, and then mix them into the dough and bake. Yes, it’s that simple.

You can make this recipe on any given day and can pack it for your kid’s lunch box recipe.

Why you Should Make Swirl Bread?

Nowadays kids, tend to eat more bread than chapati. We as a parent apply some sauces or spread and give them. This means that they are not consuming their veggie portion. But if you add those veggies to the bread itself and bake and feed, then it takes care of both.

Here’s a few reasons why you should make this Swirl Bread –

  • great way to feed your kids, more veggies.
  • homemade
  • no artificial color
  • healthy
  • eggless

Basic Ingredients Used to Make this Recipe:

This recipe uses very minimal ingredients and does not require any fancy items.

  • All-purpose flour: Today I have used maida for this recipe, to get the nice tri-color. but if you want you can use wheat flour as well.
  • Milk: You’ll need fat in the dough to make soft bread. The addition of milk in this recipe gives a fantastic texture.
  • Yeast: I have used Instant dry yeast for this bread, but you can use active dry yeast as well.
  • Sugar: Sugar feeds the yeast, increases its activity, and softens the dough.
  • Milk Powder: I have used milk powder in this recipe which helps in softening any bread.
  • Butter/vegetable oil: I have used vegetable oil in bread, but you can also use butter or olive oil as well.
  • Salt: In order to make flavorful bread, salt is much needed for this recipe.
  • Spinach: For the green color I have used spinach here, you can even use mint or coriander leaves.
  • Carrot: For the orange color, I have used carrot. Though you will be not getting the exact color of orange, since after the veggies come in contact with heat the color doesn’t remain the same. But no problem, at least you be getting the shades of orange without using any artificial color.
  • Water: Water to knead the dough.

Frequently Asked Questions about Tri Color Bread Recipe:

Why does my bread not rise?

In 90% of the cases, it is because the yeast is not good.

How can you tell if yeast is good?

To test if your yeast is still active, combine 1 teaspoon sugar with 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (one packet) in 1/4 cup of warm water. After that, wait ten minutes. The yeast is still good if the mixture bubbles and creates a yeasty fragrance.

What can be used instead of yeast?

You can use Baking powder, baking soda, and sourdough starters as substitutes. You can read more about the same here.
