Green Garlic Swirl Loaf

For today recipe I gave a wonderful flavor what we usually don't get in South India. That is Green garlic, yes we get fresh garlic cloves but not the green part. When Vaishali ask me that any thing I need from Ahmadabad, The first thing I ask her is green channa and green garlic. So sweet of her she brought two bags of green channa and lot's of green garlic. That green garlic we all shared,I got a big bunch in my share. My first try with green garlic is paratha's they are super hit. Now I don't want to finish it off so saute some in ghee and stored in the freezer. Some I crushed and mix with olive oil like pesto. Trust me this crushed green garlic in olive oil is  perfect with freshly baked bread. When I dip my bread in this green garlic olive oil then only I got this idea of baking a bread with this. Then I thought of mixing with flour but changed my idea with spreading it over the dough and roll. Ahh when I was baking the bread the, house is filled with beautiful garlic aroma. Thank you so much for the Green garlic and green channa Vaishali:).

Don't you get fresh green chana in Chennai? That is my favorite and miss it a lot here. We do get it here too but I am very lazy to shell. I remember how you all wanted green garlic. Filling for the loaf is mouthwatering. Yummy looking loaf.
