Challah is a main content of Mishloach Manot – the gifts of foodstuffs offered to our dear ones on the festival of Purim. Challah is braid-like bread, which looks scrumptious by its mere appearance. And you can prefer to either make or shop for truly several varieties of challahs to adorn your Mishloach Manot basket. An excellent idea to gift a challah in a Mishloach Manot basket is to form the basket of a challah itself. To form this type of challah, a utensil is brought into use as a base. To begin with, the dough is given a flat shape by rolling it to make the circular downside of the challah basket. After that 1 inch broad bands are formed from the dough. First some of these strips are arranged vertically on the surface of the pot with their one tip stuck at the base earlier fitted over the pot’s base. After the full lateral wall of the utensil is covered with the strips, some other longer strips are woven into them one after the other, starting from the base to the top. After this is finished, the upper sides of the lateral ribbons remain hanging unevenly, which are trimmed with a sharp knife. The rim of the basket can be formed using another chunky band or also with one more slim braided strip to make it more stylish. Likewise you can make a handle of a braided challah for the basket. This handle is linked with the basket making use of toothpicks. If you pack this challah basket, with numerous eatables and other things like biscuits, chocolates and fruits, it will become an outstanding Mishloach Manot gift. Another remarkable theme is to create a napkin holder of challah. To accomplish this, firstly a challah flower is formed by preparing two dough rolls and twisting them together and fusing their ends. This gives rise to a closed circle of the two rolls. Afterwards a tiny section of an aluminum foil is molded into a circle and put at the middle of this flower, with its exterior greased. The flower made in this way is now baked along with the aluminum foil ring in the center. When baked, we can place a paper napkin or a cloth napkin in the middle aperture, created due to the aluminum foil. In the Mishloach Manot pack of gifts, you are free to present this challah together with a napkin previously inserted in it. You are at liberty to also keep a flower upright in the middle of the napkin cone, to turn it more captivating. You can prefer to also make a mixture of Hamantash and challah by making a triangular challah and stuffing it with yummy kosher food items, like caramel, chocolate, cheese, dry fruits many others.
