    I’m new to cooking and so glad to have found your space sometime back. I have been a silent reader of your space. I love all the recipes and have already tried out several of them. Thank you for bringing me many appreciation. Looking forward to more recipes.

    You have a wonderful blog… i have tried a few recipes from your blog and they turned wonderful…. Thanks a ton to you….

    I have tried carrot cake, dates cake and sweet pongal… they were awesome…

    Which brand yeast do you use? I tried some breads but they did not turn out great…. :(

    • says

      Yeast plays a very important role while baking breads. Always proof the yeast before you bake, in fact test it the previous day itself. If it does not froths your bread will not come out perfect. I use “Sun” Brand Active Dry Yeast. Recently started using an Imported brand of “Instant yeast”.
