If I am making challah and want to taste the dough before baking would I make hamotzi or would it be adamah and shehakol for flour and eggs since it's not considered לחם מן הארץ yet?

    Do you plan on swallowing it? Maybe you don't need a bracha at all? What about netilas yadiem?

  • Yes I would swallow it, like tasting it to see if it's salty enough...

  • For you to make Hamotzi the bread has to be baked. Shehakol is appropriate.

1 Answer 1


You need to make Shehakol because dough isn't intended for eating

  • To add to this answer the general rule that any food eaten in a state in which it is not normally eaten 'downgrades' the required before and after bracha.
