To make the meatballs

Mix all the ingredients well. Make small meatballs and keep aside.

For the soup

Heat oil in a large sauce pan, add the onion and saute till they are translucent and soft. Add rest of the veggies and saute for a minute add the chicken stock cube and water bring it to a rolling boil. When it starts to boil add the meatballs and after a minute reduce the flame to medium low.

Dust the work surfaces with flour and roll into a thin round circle. 
Cut  this  with a round cutter into a smaller circle. 
Prick it with a fork (so that it does not puff up while frying or else they will not remain crisp).

In the meantime time heat sufficient oil in deep frying pan.
Keep a clean thick cloth and a rolling pin ready.

When the oil is hot add a cut circle and fry till it is just starts getting golden on both sides.

Peperoncini Focaccia Bread#BreadBakers

It's  posting time for  February Bread Bakers Event " Catch up Theme"  and our  Host is Pavani Nandula.
In 2016 August - Peppers was the theme, could not participate in this event. Made this Focaccia Bread with Peperoncini and Red Bell peppers which was to be done for the event. 

Peperoncini is a type of mild, green chilly pepper with a yellowish tint, here these are called Gol Mirch. These are my Homemade Pickled Peperoncini, it's preserved in vinegar. These chilles are not spicy and give a distinctive taste to the bread.   The method of pickling them is same recipe is as This
I have posted a recipe of Focaccia Caprese
For today's recipe I, used more than 1/3 cup of pomace olive oil for kneading the dough. I know you will say that's a lot of oil, but, trust me, make this bread and you will love it. My hubby enjoyed this bread and loved the taste of olive oil in it, who otherwise does not like so much of oil in anything that you serve him. This bread was so delicious and pretty to look at. 
For the Dough
1 Teaspoon Instant yeast
A Pinch Sugar
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cup Pomace Olive Oil
250 ML Water - more or less
For the Topping

2 Tablespoon Finely Chopped Red Bell Pepper
2 Sprigs Fresh Rosemary
Extra Virgin Olive Oil for the final drizzle
4 -5 Peperoncini - sliced
To Make the dough

Place in the yeast, sugar, flour, salt, into the bowl and mix well. Gradually add water and 1/4 cup oil knead until you have a wet sticky dough. Take it on to a generously oiled work surface, oil your hands and with a bench scrapper keep on folding the dough , till you get a smooth and soft dough ( this dough will be sticky so do not any flour). Then place it in a well oiled bowl turning the dough around so that it is coated with oil. Cover it using a damp cloth and let it rise till it doubles in volume.

Drain all the water from Peperoncini and slice it. Keep it aside. 

Take a rectangular pan 9 x 7 inches grease it with olive oil well. Punch down the dough and place the dough on to the pan and with press it till the sides of the pan. 
Make dimples and arrange the sliced peperoncini, bell peppers and sprinkle rosemary, drizzle generously with pomace olive oil and let it rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
Bake at 200 degrees C for about 20 to 25 minutes till it is done ( start to leave the sides of pan) and is beginning to turn golden brown on top.
Once the Focaccia is out from the oven, drizzle generously over it Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
 Take it out from the pan and place it on to a cooling rack. 
When cooled sliced it and enjoy. 
Fresh from the oven this is absolutely divine.
