Spicy spinach bread (eggless)

Its raining since yesterday in portions .Alhamdulillah there's a change in the weather ,desperately waiting for this .Though this time winters are late ,but at least.... started on a rainy note!Rains bring along a change in the mood,the lush greens with drops of water on them ,the earthy smell ,drenched pathways , aah!!!what an eye candy .
Just cant  keep yourself away from peeping through the window .Myself doing the same since yesterday.After bearing the summer temperatures as high as 48 c its surely a matter of rejoice.November had been a so so with hot noons and breezy evenings.
It was surely the effect of rain that I was badly craving for something spicy,  aromatic with our evening tea.Baking is always therapeutic to me.
This was on my to do list for a long time,so thought of giving it try.It was my first venture on savoury breads .It falls under the category of quick breads.Usually breads are baked using yeast as a raising agent ,where as quick breads rely on baking powder or baking soda.
The subtle flavour of spinach together with caramelised onion and a hint of garlic elevate this simple bread to a next level of taste,Was complementing to the weather  outside.The crust was crispy and the inner was soft like a sponge.The next day it even tasted better,just toasted it slightly .
The recipe follows.....................

  1. I have used curd u can even use sour cream or replace it with eggs.
  2. Used only 3 chillies to cater to my family's taste u can increase it if u want much spicier.
  3. Spinach can even be replaced with Italian seasoning or any other vegetables.
