4.29 from 7 votes

The quest of trying something new made me decide to bake a 100% pure semolina bread. I started scrolling multiple posts of fellow bakers and a lot of googling on the internet.
Hard work never goes waste and true to its point I finally found a recipe for Semolina Bread. This was something that I haven't tried so far and was worth giving a shot.
A detailed study helped me understand that regular durum wheat semolina will not work for baking this Semolina Bread. I wanted to make a gluten free bread and durum semolina is rich in gluten.
This semolina might be good for making South Indian delicacies like Upma and Idlies however for a pure Semolina Bread I needed the finest of the Rice Semolina. Rice semolina, unlike durum semolina is gluten free.
Next step was to order the rice semolina from Amazon as I wanted to try my first 100% Semolina Loaf.

  • The Semolina will soak the water and help you to handle the dough later on.
  • Now take the mixture out on a dusted surface and start kneading it to get a smooth and soft dough. It will take around 10-15 minutes.
  • Once the dough is ready, keep it in a greased bowl for the first rise. It will approximately take 1 hour.
  • Once the dough is doubled in volume, Punch it and take it out on a dusted surface. Knead it gently and give the shape of a loaf.
  • Grease a tin and place this loaf in it. Cover it with greased cling wrap. Keep it in a dry and warm place for the second rise. Meanwhile, preheat the Oven to 200 degree Celsius.
  • Now remove the cling wrap and brush the top of the loaf with milk. Bake it at 200 degree Celsius for 35 minutes.
  • Once it's baked, Take it out on a wired rack and let it cool for 2 hours. Now cut the slices and Enjoy.
