MY NOTES (WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT ) AND MY VERDICT TOO:
Which I feel is very important as the way my cousins described to me was little bit different one of them said to take the amount of water he told and asked me to put salt, sugar, yeast and oil in it and then add the flour & milk powder to it and make it into a dough, the other didn’t say anything about mixing as he was busy with the customers!!, so I had to write down anything he told me over the phone and did not disturb him during his business hours, well it was fun, So what I did was I quartered the recipe , but the flour wasn’t enough when I made the dough. Dough becomes so sticky I had tried with 500 gms of flour too.., So I started mixing more flour but did not increase any other ingredients and maintained them as it was, when the dough became stick I kept increasing the flour and stopped until it became less sticky and I could handle the dough easily when I was kneading if it became sticky when kneading I dipped my hand just in dough take it out and start kneading again, that way I was not adding any more flour but I got the job done!! bravo.., then came the raising section and that was the best part, even the weather didn’t help may be people leaving in India might be lucky as it is quite warm up there, mine took 24 hours and I had to wait with lot of patience and didn’t do anything until it doubled in size, I left in the fridge overnight then took it out in the morning and left it in a warm place Once it raised I punched it, kneaded it again softly the dough will be a bit sticky handle with care and put it back in the loaf tin and left it again for it to raise again and then, I had lot of patience as I had thrown the baked dough thrice, that’s it no more wasting so patience was my key…, job done Lo!! here is my lovely soft sweet bread, you all must give it a try, they were just so soft as the shop bought ones and I couldn’t believe it myself.
So I like to thank Harini, & my cousins who gave me this recipe and I achieved it at last..,
Last but not least because of this bread I web searched and got this web address kaythnahalli where in |I watched this year’s Rathothsavam of Lord Lakshmi Jhanardhana, in a video coverage.
