Mixed Vegetables Stuffed Pulla Apart bread-HBC July

By Harini
The home bakers challenge for the month of July was hosted by Manjula.She had challenged us with a series of bread and we were supposed to bake one or more.
1.Rainbow classic swirl bread
2.Fresh strawberry chocolate stuffed pull apart bread
3.Chocolare marble Asian bread
4.Anadama bread
Out of these four the pull part bread looked interesting to me but I didn't want to make sweet filling there.So I kind of altered the recipe for savory filling and made this bread for our dinner recently.The bread turned out pretty soft and yummy and I was happy to succeed on the first attempt :). Here goes the recipe with pics :)
