Wholemeal Roti Benggali is a variation of the regular Roti Benggali. Since we make it using wholemeal flour, the result is a beige-colour bread, as oppose the usual white bread. The Wholemeal Roti Benggali is fantastic when eaten with kaya.

The photographs you see here is the Wholemeal Roti Benggali which we made at home yesterday morning. Yes, we use a breadmaker to knead the dough for us. We wouldn't be bothered to hand knead the dough. This allows us time to also make our own kaya to go with it. Making your own bread is not something to consider if you don't have time. Total making time for this Wholemeal Roti Benggali is 2 hours, and that's just with one time proofing. This bread was shared between my wife and I, eaten with our own homemade kaya.
