Herb Bread/Masala Bread

I have been looking for the recipe Bread with herbs since long time.Most of the herb bread made here in US  consists of rosemary which I personally don't like.It has a very strong aroma. Finally, I found Indian version - Sanjeev's Kapoor Masala Bread.
4 Cups All pupose flour
1 tbsp Yeast
4 tsp Salt
1 1/2 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp Butter
1 tsp Black pepper powder
Few fresh coriander chopped
Few fresh mint leaves chopped
3-4 Green chillies chopped
1 inch Ginger finely chopped
4-5 cloves Garlic finely chopped
2 Eggs
3 tbsp Oil
2 tbsp Sesame seeds

In a Large bowl,mix  flour, yeast, salt, sugar, butter and pepper powder.
Add ginger, half of the coriander leaves, mint leaves garlic  and egg to the mixture and knead to a soft dough using water as required and knead well. Add 2 tbsp of oil and continue to knead.
Spread some flour on a flat surface, place the dough on it and knead till the dough is absolutely soft.
Put dough back into a bowl, grease some oil and cover with a damp cloth and leave it to rise for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Divide the dough into smaller portions depending on the shapes required.  Spread some sesame seeds on a flat surface and roll one portion over it so that the entire portion is covered with the seeds. Beat an egg yolk with a little water and brush the dough balls.
Lastly,add the remaining chopped coriander leaves,mint leaves and chopped garlic.
Leave it covered for another 15-20 minutes to rise more.
Bake in the preheated oven at 400 F for 20-30 minutes.
Let it cool before you serve or cut into pieces.
