Rind Fussball Bread


Oooh!  What an unusual football in the ground, nooooo ...... that's our bread last night.( the picture is just for fun), Football is referred to as fussball in German. I have used here watermelon rind, so that's where the name comes from Rind Fussball Bread.
Watermelon contains lots of vitaminC , 92 percent of watermelon  contains water by weight. Mostly we used to have only the red part of watermelon, but the inner white part and the rind contains lots of hidden nutrients, to read more about watermelon click here.
The pattern of football is just for fun, since the world cup is going on, you can also just bake the bread without these patterns.

Ingredients:
White bread flour-300 g
Dried yeast- 11/2 tsp
Salt-1/2 tsp
Sugar-1 tsp
Watermelon rind- 1 cup chopped
Water- about 120 ml
Olive oil-1 tsp
For the topping( optional):
.Sesame seeds- 1 tbsp
Nigella seeds-1/2 tbsp
Plain flour- 50 g
Butter- 25 g
Method:
Take the inner part of water melon along with the skin, wash well, puree it with the amount of water suggested in the ingredients. Boil the puree in a pan, until it's just hot. Combine all the dough ingredients in a large bowl, pour the warm puree and knead together to make a soft dough, cover with a cling film and leave it in a warm place to rise for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.
When the dough has risen punch the air back, roll it out into a circle, cover it and leave it in a warm place for another 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 200 degree celsius. Take the rolled out dough, to make a football pattern, draw a pentagon in the middle and around the pentagon, draw hexagon, repeat this, sprinkle the pentagon with nigella seeds and hexagon with sesame seeds.
To make the layers more visible, mix the butter and flour together until it resembles like bread crumbs, then add just enough water to make it like a paste, fill the paste in a piping bag and pipe it in the layers.
Bake the bread in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Serving Suggestion:
Serve the bread while it is still warm with salad and curries or serve slices of bread  with salad, meat and cheese like a burger or sandwich.
