Note: I dint use any dressing while making my sandwich, i used only mayo and it tasted great,,, so if u wannna avoid the dressings u can do so without any hesitation. You can buy ready made baguette from stores but I baked it fresh at home
The recipe is as follows
1. 1 and hlf cup maida
2. 1 and hlf tsp instant yeast
3. A pinch of baking soda
4. Milk Powder 2 tbsp
5. Salt 1/2 tsp
6. Sugar very little


1. Take 1/2 a cup of luke warm water add salt and sugar to it, mix well and add instant yeast. Cover and set aside for 5-7 mins till it becomes frothy.
2. Add this water to maida and mix well and knead into a very soft dough, use extra water if needed
3. Once the dough is kneaded well, let it rest on a warm place for 2 hours
4. After 2 hours the dough will be double its size, knock it down well so that all the air is released and the dough comes to its original size.
5. Roll the dough into a baguette like shape and bake into a 370 degree preheated oven for 20 minutes or till the crust is golden in colour.
6. Once done, let the bread cool and use as directed above
