Cardamom Flavoured Coconut Bread

Cardamom and Coconut are meant to go together. And so it did in a warm freshly baked bread. My kitchen (in fact my whole house) smells so nice 'n refreshing:)
Here is a quick and easy recipe for cardamom coconut bread.


  • Organic Whole wheat flour - 1 1/4 cup
  • Organic Bread flour - 1/4 cup
  • Organic Arrowroot powder - 2 Tbs.
  • Organic Finely shredded coconut - 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom - 5-6 pods (peeled and ground)
  • Organic Virgin coconut oil - 1 Tbs.
  • Luke warm water - 3/4 cup
  • Organic Coconut palm sugar - 1 Tbs.
  • Active dry yeast - 1 tsp.
  • Sea salt - 1/2 tsp.



  • In a small bowl, add 1/4 cup of luke warm water and dissolve sugar and yeast. Keep aside for 5-10 minutes till frothy.
  • In a bowl add the flours, arrowroot powder, coconut, cardamom and salt. Add the remaining warm water, coconut oil and yeast mixture. Mix everything to a dough and knead well for 10-12 minutes. If you or someone in the family has the patience and skill, well that's the best way to go. Else you will have to depend on a kitchen gadget to do it. That's what I do, use my bread machine to knead for me :)
  • Divide the dough into 8 parts. Roll each part into balls and keep on a baking tray leaving couple of inches between them. Keep the tray in a warm place for about 2 hours or till the balls are doubled on size.
  • Bake in 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes till the breads are golden brown.
  • Serve warm along side soup or stew..
