French Bread With Herb Butter

I use a long french bread / baguette , make slits as shown in the pic till 75% , don't cut till the base.

Herb Butter / Garlic Butter:
Take 100 grams soft butter , add 1/2 teaspoon garlic paste , salt and pepper and butter the slits of the bread with it on both sides.Wrap in foil and put in the oven at 200C for 15 minutes , or more depending on how you like the bread.

If you wish , add some minced herbs into the garlic butter- in which case reduce the garlic a bit .I use chopped coriander leaves or basil leaves , depending on availability .This is a wonderful accompaniment with soup or the main meal , which is how I like it . The recipe is simple and totally flexible , adjust to taste.
