Recipe Notes

  1. If you are using dry yeast, then mix yeast with the amount of sugar mentioned in recipe, 1/4 cup warm milk and leave it aside to ferment for 15 mins. Then use the yeast while kneading the dough.
  2. Don’t use hot milk or hot water in the yeast or while kneading dough, as hot temperature causes to kill the yeast.
  3. Click here for Goan Sausage Chilly Fry Recipe, skip the potatoes in chilly fry when using as a stuffing for the breads.
  4. Before baking, you can use milk to brush on top of breads but egg yolk gives a nice shine on the breads while milk brushed top will make them look dull.
  5. Keep the breads covered in cloth once baked to keep them soft.
  6. You can use full milk or half milk and water to knead the dough.
