Savoury Vegetable Semolina bread

Ever since I tried the sweet Semolina cake, the savoury one had been on my to-do list. I had seen the recipe video long time back on you tube and finally made this today. It turned out to be a good breakfast dish with its share of veggies in it. It can also be a good tiffin snack for kids. And if you take aside the baking time, the preparation time is quiet less.
Serving: For 2
Ingredients:
Semolina – 1 cup
Thick Yoghurt – 1 cup ( I didn’t hang it, just scooped out the thick part)
Salt to taste
Vegetables – 1/2 cup (combination of parboiled peas, beans and carrots)
Ginger – 1 tsp, chopped
Baking soda – 1/2 tsp ( I used 1 tsp, but felt the odour to be a little strong in the bread. Since the bread has curd in it 1/2 tsp should be sufficient)
For tempering:
Oil – 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Sesame seeds – 1tsp
Curry leaves – 10-15 chopped
Green Chillies – 1 tsp, chopped
Method:
Preheat the oven to 150C. ( I use this temperature in my microwave convection oven. It may vary in your oven. Please set the temperature that you use for baking cakes)
In a bow mix together Semolina and baking soda.
Add curd and mix.
Add vegetables, chopped ginger and salt and mix well.
Heat oil. Add mustard seeds. When they start to crackle reduce heat to low.
Add sesame seeds.
Add turmeric powder.
Add green chillies and curry leaves
Put this oil mixture in Semolina mixture and mix well.
Grease a 10 inch loaf tin and pour this mixture. Sprinkle some Sesame on top.
Bake for 45 minutes or till the top turns golden brown. Let the bread rest in oven for 7-10 minutes.
Take it out and let it cool down a bit.
Cut into slices and enjoy with Sauce/Chutney/Butter. I had mine with Mint and green onion chutney!
Modification I may do next time:
I would try eno fruit salt in place of baking soda.
I may also add some Sugar, kasoori methi and garam masala in my next try.
