Theme : Baking
Theme of the week: Breads

Coming to the second day of this month long marathon, I have a bread which is very quick, easy and healthy. This is a bread which I had bookmarked long back from Gayathri's blog.The bread is very flavorful and I served it with some cheese spread. I was shocked to see the bread disappearing in minutes. The onions, poppy seeds and the sesame seeds all lend it a very unique flavor. I was impressed with my self, if I may say so.
