Hi Aarthi, I have a doubt, should we use Dry yeast or wet yeast for making the dough? UmaRaghu

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips


I used dry yeast..

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

Hi Aarthi, Is it possible to make the dough well in advance and store it in fridge. If so how many days we can store and use? Please reply, since it will be very useful for me to make in bulk and store it in fridge ( Especially before preparing for party's) - UmaRaghu/Poland

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Anonymousyes u can store in fridge for upto a week..

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

Can you tell me 2 cups of all purpose flour is equal to how many grams of all purpose flour/Maida

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Anonymous It is around 240 to 250 grams..

Priety Maheshwari said... Best Blogger Tips

my yeast mixture has nt got frothy despite being kept for one hour. nd even I used dry yeast...whts wrong ..Help

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Priety MaheshwariIt is because of three reason.

1)You must have added yeast to cold water. It wont get activated in cold water.

2)You must have added yeast to very hot water, so it must have killed yeast.

3)Your yeast must be expired. Always store yeast in fridge. Throw the yeast away and get a new batch.
