I had bookmarked this recipe sometime back from Divyas Easycooking blog.But since I hadn't found good yeast,it held me from baking.When I had baked Masala bun last time my Papa had enjoyed it heartily,and I had told him about my hunt on good yeast.So my dear Papa specially went to a local bakery and got me Prestige brand yeast,an imported brand and guess what? I can open my own bakery,lol,he has brought 500 g pack.I still don't know what I ll do with so much of yeast,as of now I have stored it in a refrigerator. When it comes to baking I follow Divya's footsteps.Thanks a lot Divya for your mind blowing recipe. There's many more in the list...The dough had raised just the way it had to.So applauds to me for not not giving up.I experimented the yeast proofing with 3 glasses of water with different temperatures,warm,boiled and cooled,and lukewarm, which all proofed(Prestige brand) and one more with the different brand which didn't proof.
