Chewy Black Sesame Seed Bread With Tapioca Powder

Chewy Black Sesame Seed Bread With Tapioca Powder

You don't need to proof this dough. Just mix and bake. If you like a bouncy and chewy texture, you should try it.

Ingredients: 8 bread rolls

Tapioca powder
200 g
☆Milk
120 ml (126 g)
☆Water
100 ml
☆Oil
40 g
☆Salt
1/2-2/3 teaspoon
Egg
1 large size
Black sesame seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons

Steps

1. Combine the ☆ milk, water, oil and salt in a pot, and heat up. Turn off the heat right before it comes to a boil, and add the tapioca powder.
2. Mix well with a spatula since it's hot. When it's no more floury, add the beaten egg and sesame seeds, and mix well.
3. When the mixture is cool enough to touch, knead well. Divide the dough into 8 portions, and shape them into sticks. (They also look cute if you shape them into balls.)
4. Depending on the size of the egg, or how it's heated in Step 1, the dough may become too sticky. If it's difficult to shape, add a little tapioca powder to adjust the consistency.
5. Bake at 190℃ for 15-20 minutes, and when they are light brown, they are done.
6. I added curry powder and ground cheese to the dough to make these. "With Tapioca Powder. Chewy Curry Cheese Bread" Recipe ID: 942439
7. It's also delicious if you add ham and processed cheese into the dough. Use 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
8. Olive oil has a strong flavor, so I recommend using a neutral vegetable oil.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make "Polipia" from my local bakery myself, and I went through lots of trial and error.
