FAQ of whole wheat ladi pav

  1. Q. My pav have become little harder. Not as soft as available in the market. Where I went wrong? A. Firstly, kneading the dough for 3 to 4 minutes is very important. Secondly, proving the dough for the said time might differ as per the season and climate. In winter, it might take 15 minutes extra to prove.
  2. Q. Can I replace maida with vital wheat gluten? A. Wheat vital gluten, is very sticky in nature, it is purely the starch of wheat, cannot be used to made breads. Hence not recommended to use for making laddi pav.
  3. Q. My ladi pavs totally failed. Did not rise the second time....infact flattened out and after baking remained flat. A. The reason may be that the dry yeast used was from a packet opened since many days. Try and use a fresh packet of yeast.
  4. Q. Can I skip baking powder? A. Baking powder is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods. It works by releasing carbon dioxide gas into a batter or dough through an acid-base reaction, causing bubbles in the wet mixture to expand and thus leavening the mixture. At times you can replace with baking soda.

Tarla Dalal    Neha, congrats on making the bread. Baking powder is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods.
