Herb Battered Bread (Baharatli Ekmek)

1 package active dry yeast (~7gr)
3 cups flour/bread flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt to taste
2 tbsp margarine/butter, at room temperature
2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
½ tsp dried rosemary
¼ tsp dried thyme
1¼ cup lukewarm water

1 egg
1 tbsp milk
Sesame and nigella seeds

Add yeast and sugar into lukewarm water. Leave for 5 minutes; stir to dissolve. Mix flour and the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well in center and pour in dissolved yeast. Knead and the dough will be sticky. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes.
Put dough in a clean bowl and cover with a towel or cloth. Let rise for 1-2 hours in a warm place. Punch down and grease two 8 x 4 x 2 1/2 inch loaf pans. Divide the dough in two equal pieces and shape dough into a long loaf (see the picture). You will have two loaves of bread. Place shaped dough in greased loaf pan. Cover with towel/cloth. Leave for a rest until dough is 1 inch above the top of pan, about 1 hour(see the picture). Brush top of loaf with egg glaze and sprinkle sesame and nigella seeds. Bake in preheated 400F (200 C) oven for 40-45 minutes until golden. After taking the bread out of the oven cover it with a towel/cloth to keep it soft and warm.Serve warm and enjoy Herb Battered Bread with butter or cream cheese.
P.S: Do not use metal container when kneading or resting the dough. Metal spoils the texture of dough.
