Whole Wheat Bread Recipe

I have been baking Whole Wheat Bread since a yr, have been trying many recipes few failed, few were hit but finally when I tried this bread recipe, I thought it would be my keeper recipe.I also tried a everyday wheat bread recipe last year which I usually bake for packing mittus lunchbox, but now this recipe got me glued in.

I am baking bread for the first time in my new oven Marvello 35ltr and as you see the bread came out soo good that it is already finished.The oven space is more so now I can even bake 2 breads at a time :)
