In this No Knead Jalapeno Cumin Cheese Bread, I didn’t use the spicy jalapenos since my kids can’t eat very spicy food though I LOVE spicy, especially jalapenos. I used canned sweet jalapenos instead. But I think what really elevated the taste of this bread was the cumin cheese that I added in it. I had got this big cheese wheel from Amsterdam and I grated some of it into the dough. If you don’t have cumin cheese, no worries. Use cheddar cheese instead and sprinkle some cumin in the dough. That will do it.

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1½ TSP salt
  • 11/2 TSP dry yeast
  • 1½ cups warm water
  • ¼ cup diced jalapeños
  • 1 cup shredded cumin cheese (if you don’t have cumin cheese, use any other cheese). Cumin is optional


  • Mix flour, salt and yeast in a big bowl. Then pour in the warm water and stir until completely combined.
  • Mix in the jalapenos and cumin cheese. Dough will look messy and not smooth and that is completely okay.
  • Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let sit for 12-18 hours. After 18 hours, the dough will look puffy, bubbly and sticky.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Heavily flour clean counter top or surface. Transfer the dough onto floured surface and shape into a round ball. Cover lightly with plastic wrap (you can just lay the plastic wrap that you used to cover your large bowl over the top) and let dough rest.
  • While the dough is resting, place your dutch oven or baking pot into the oven for 30 minutes to pre-heat. Since I don’t have a dutch oven, I used a normal oven proof deep pot.
  • Place ball of dough in the center of the baking pot and cover with lid.
  • Bake at 450 degrees F for 30 minutes.
  • Return uncovered to oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes until done. Bread will be golden in color.

I’m scrappy, weird and goofy. I’m a snob when it comes to a LOT of things.., Mainly – coffee, wine and chocolates. I laugh loud and yell louder. I run fast, but walk slow. I love walking long walks with a hot mug of coffee held tight between my hands. I have lonely eyes and a kind heart. I forgive but rarely forget. I remember the silliest of things and forget important matters. I love to run, read, cook and entertain. I draw inspirations from anything and everything aesthetic. There are numerous people who have and still continue to enrich my life in many good ways. I will remain indebted to them – Always. My dad is my biggest fan when it comes to cooking. I could see his eyes light up every time I serve something. My mom’s agility and affectionate nature that reflects on her food is something I’m still trying to master. Travel fascinates me amongst other things. Leave me in Venice and I would get lost in its timeless beauty – The canals. The piazzas. The art. The espresso. Leave me in NYC and I would tirelessly walk the length and breadth of the city (after all, There is always something open 24 hours a day). Through this blog, I am hoping to bring in my passion and love for a few things – Cooking, Travel, Kids, Coffee, Clothes and in the interim learn more myself. Hope I am able to do justice to my PASSION.
