Some Frequently Asked Questions.
Why are my breadstick hard?
Here are some of the reasons rolls can come out hard and flat. if your yeast is not activated, then dough wont rise and the bread will be hard. Over baking can make your rolls hard. Also not letting the dough rise enough also makes it hard.
Can you over knead dough?
If you think you‘ve over-kneaded the dough, try letting it rise a little longer before shaping it.
What happens if I don’t knead my dough enough?
If you don’t knead your dough enough by hand or if you don’t allow it enough time in your mixer, the dough will lack strength. Once baked, an under-kneaded bread loaf will be flat and dense in texture
Why is my bread so heavy and dense?
you did not knead it or leave it to prove for long enough or you could have killed the yeast by leaving the dough to rise in a place that was too hot.
Can you let bread rise too long?
Letting the dough rise for too long makes the structure of the bread weak, so it can‘t support itself.
What can I eat with breadsticks?
You can serve it with just soups. You can even serve it with sabzi, kheema, bhurji, omelette or any curries to soak the rolls in.
