Challah is a special braided bread eaten by Jews on the Sabbath and holidays.
The dough is rolled into rope-shaped pieces which are braided before baking. Poppy, nigella, or sesame seeds may be sprinkled on the bread before baking..
Mine seems not a real traditional one since I've got the recipe from the website called 'bakingandbooks' written by a woman called 'Ariela' ...and having seen what she's done on baking , I thought I could trust her recipes!
Please have a look at the original recipe at the link below..And I'd like to thank her for such a great recipe..
Anyway, I didn't do exactly the same as her method...what the difference is that I left the dough to rise in double size first before adding chocolate chunks and dried apricot while the original added them first and let them risen ! Also I used beaten egg mixed with milk for washing the dough and sprinkled some poppy seed on the top begfore baking..Apart from that nothing else was modified !
