Okay, so the name sounds interesting right?? And trust me as you,will read the description and then the ingredient of the bread, you will find it even more interesting. :)

Starting with why did I named it a fusion bread??? Because, I have used indian seasoning ingredients like cumin seeds, garam masala, coriander powder, turmeric and so on.. So,  uh kg indian flavors in western bread loaf was the while idea behind a Fusion.. 

Winter in India means lots of fresh green leafy veggies. And I make best use of them and try to incorporate them as much as I can in my meals. Few days back when I made this loaf, a thought strike my mind, can't a bread be flavoured with these amazing vitamin and iron rich leafy veggies?? So, without any delay I prepared this whole wheat loaf using indian seasoning ingredients and flavoured it with fresh fenugreek leaves. 

Very moist, very buttery, flavourful and healthy loaf. :)
