In a glass,add milk,hot water,caster sugar,instant yeast & mix well,cover & let it rest for 5 minutes & set aside.

In a bowl,add half quantity of all-purpose flour,sugar,salt & mix well.

Add yeast mixture,egg,vanilla essence,mix well and beat continuously for 6-8 minutes with the help of wooden spoon.

Now add remaining flour,mix well and knead until dough is formed.

Add melted butter & knead dough again.

On a clean working surface,place dough,stretch dough & knead until its smooth (3-4 minutes).

Place the dough in a bowl and grease with butter,cover & let it proof for 1-2 hours or until double in size (warm place).

In a bowl,add caster sugar,hot water & mix well until sugar dissolves & set aside.

Knead dough again until smooth,sprinkle dry flour and divide in half.

Take one portion,make a ball,sprinkle dry flour & roll out into a rectangular shape.

On rolled dough,add & spread nutella spread with the help of offset spatula & sprinkle chocolate chips.

Use both hands to roll up the rectangular like a roulade,starting from the long side closest to you and ending at the other side.

Using a knife,gently cut the roll in half lengthwise,starting at the top and finishing at the seam.

You should have two long,even halves with the layers of dough and filling visible along the length of both.With the cut sides facing up,gently press together one end of each halfthen lift the right half over the left half.Repeat the process again this time lifting the left half over the right to create a simple two-pronged plait.Gently squeeze together the other ends so that you are left with two intertwined halves showing the filling on top.

Carefully lift into a greased loaf pan (11 x 4 inch),cover with cling film & let it proof for 30 minutes then remove cling film.

Bake in preheated oven at 180 C for 15 minutes (on lower grill) then 10 minutes on both grills.

Takeout from oven,brush the sugar syrup over the bread & let it cool completely (makes 2).

Cut into desired slices & serve!
