Keema Kulcha Roti. Minced Meat stuffed Chappathi. Meat Stuffed Indian Bread. Kaima Stuffed Chappathi.
has tagged me to participate in this noble event by ‘Breadline Africa’. Thanks for tagging me dear! Though its a bake event, One should post something related to bread baking. When it come to baking, I really chicken out, so will post something that I knew, an Indian bread! Minced Meat stuffed Whole Wheat Bread.
I always make sure that the atta is along with husk, right from the start. As Mommy used to make chappathi with ultra refined atta/fortified one. I used to drive to the nearby diabetic centre to buy just ‘husk of atta/barn/the polished waste’. Everyone around me criticized my action(those days). Now, I guess people are little aware of the fact all vitamins lie only on the husk. Eating whole meal will also make us to less crave for carb’ and sugary food. As any carbohydrate gets burnt quickly and there will be sudden raise in the insulin production….this is not so good! Slowly it will lead to failure in insulin production(that is type 2 diabetes, over usage of anything leads to failure one day). So instead of giving heavy duty by eating a refined flour food, better choose ‘whole wheat’ meal….where it burns slowly in the body, there by giving a steady flow of glucose(energy) to us. Pairing the carbohydrate with a protein(meat/lentils)will make it complete planned food.
While one side of the world has gone foodie and fighting obesity, eating disorder (over eating food – related problems)…the other side of the world is struggling for their daily bread, hope Y’ll understand the need and attention! Lets do our best friends!:)
I would like to tag 5 of my friends for this event:
The following is quoted from the Breadline Africa Bake-Off site:

Breadline Africa is a registered charity in South Africa that is seeking to put an end to poverty in South Africa and further afield in Africa. Their aim is to break the cycle of poverty and help communities to achieve long term self-sustainability. Breadline Africa was founded in 1993 by social workers and communities in South Africa with minded colleagues in Europe, (who were well placed to source out donations). They are geared to help fund small ground level projects in Africa which are most likely to succeed with financial help.
On Blog Action Day Breadline Africa launched their Worldwide Blogger Bake-Off campaign. The aim is to raise $1 million in funds for a project to convert shipping containers into locations for food production and distribution in Africa. It is hoped that these sustainable community kitchens will not only provide food such as bread and soup to those in need, but also opportunities for skills development within poor communities.This bake-off gives us baking blogger the power to make a difference in this world. What do we do? Bake bread. Give Dough. Feed Africa. Vals says, “You can sign up for the campaign, make a donation, upload your bread recipes and document your culinary adventures in the media center to spread the word. You don’t have to donate money but simply just mention the campaign and create awareness.”
