Add both flours into a separate bowl and then add the wet ingredients. Stir it all up with your hand until you get a nice dough.
Now flour you baking dish.
Place the dough in the baking dish and cut a few lines on the top. Now bake in the oven for about 15 minutes at 232C/450F and then reduce to 200C/390F for another 10 minutes.
Here is what it looks like when it comes out of the oven.
Now cut thin slices and lay out on a baking dish. Pour some olive oil and a little salt on each piece of bread. Then put in the oven and bake on medium high heat until the bread gets toasty.

dash of hing
3 tbsp olive oil
Chop up the tomatoes and basil or arugula. Then in a small mixing bowl add all the ingredients and stir together.
Now top the toasted bread with the tomato Bruschetta and you are ready to serve Kṛṣṇa!
