The paste reacts with the lactic & acetic acid (a bi product of the fermentation process during the proving period) and cracks during the baking process. The rice paste crust also gives this bread a distinctive flavour and aroma! a twist on our classic tiger bread a dusting of ground pepper finishes this loaf.
