In this video , we'll see how to make super soft and delicious power with all the tips and tricks .
Let's get started .
First step is to activate the yeast .
So for that , we need 3/4 cup of warm milk , milk should be warm and not hot , add to tea full of sugar and give it a good stir .
This process is called as blooming of the yeast .
Now at 2.5 teaspoon dry yeast , I'm using dry yeast here and you can see the brand name mentioned on the video , give it a mix and then you need to cover it and let it bloom .
So this would take 10 to 15 minutes .
But if you see that the yeast is not activating or the blooming has not happened .
That means the yeast is not good , please .
In that case , do not go ahead and use that yeast .
Please don't do that .
This is a very important step in a bowl .
Take 2.5 cup , all purpose flour or meda or if you have bread flour , you can take that as well , add salt as Batiste and just make a well in the center and pour in the yeast mixture .
Now bring everything together .
Now gradually add water .
So you would need 4 to 5 tablespoon water and you would notice that the dough would become sticky like this .
That's ok because this is how it's going to be .
Next step is to pull and stretch the dough to develop gluten .
So I'm showing you one thing .
So this is the whisk attachment and this is dough hook attachment .
I don't know if you have this with your hand mixer , but I have it .
So if you have this , you can also use this , this would save you some time and your energy .
So if you have it , you can use it .
But I'm going to show you how to do it when you do not have a stand mixer or do not have such dough hook attachment in your hand mixer .
So you need to stretch and pull the dough and you can use oil or you can apply oil to your hand to handle the dough .
Well , you need to do this for 15 to 20 minutes and in between add some butter to the stove .
So I'm using 2.5 tablespoon and then continue stretching and pulling the dough towards the end .
You may add a little me extra meda or use oil to handle the dough .
So you would still see it's slightly sticking , that's OK .
Use oil and then bring it together and put it in your boon Mhm Cover it and let it rest for 1 to 2 hours .
It should double in size .
It totally depends on the temperature in your area or where you stay .
So this is the mold which I'm going to use .
It's not mandatory to use a cake tin or cake mold .
You can use your baking tray as well .
If you would have seen my blog , I have used a baking tray in that putting butter pepper is totally optional .
You can see the dough has doubled in size .
A very important point .
If you let this dough rest for like a lot of time , then that would also not result in a good bread .
So over proofing or overdo , it is also not going to give you good bread .
Just need again for a minute .
Now it's time to divide this two into small portions .
So I'm dividing this dough into 99 portions to make nine power .
But let me tell you , you can also double the number .
I mean you can make small power 18 in numbers .
So nine to the 18 .
So nine big power with this recipe , 12 , slightly smaller power and 18 smaller power .
So it's up to you now to decide how many power you want to and what size of power you want to make .
But remember , smaller power would take less time for baking compared to the bigger ones .
Now it's time for second proofing or proofing .
Cover it with a damp cloth and let it sit for 45 minutes approximately .
Again , it depends on the temperature in your region .
Pow has doubled in size .
And yes , that could be an indicator for you to identify whether it's ready for baking brush with some milk pickers that would help get the browning on top .
Or if you are non vegetarian or you are vegetarian , you can also apply egg wash .
Now it's time to bake it .
So I've preheated my oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes and I'm going to bake this power for 20 to 22 minutes .
And like I said , for smaller power , the baking time would reduce .
So the powers are done and it's time to brush these with oil or butter .
I'm using oil here , but you can also use butter .
Another very important tip when the mold becomes warm enough to touch or your baking tray becomes warm enough to touch , take the power out and place on a wire rack or something that would let air circulate from its bottom .
If you let it cool down completely in the tray or the mold , the bottom will become soggy and yeah , when you take the power out of the oven , the top might feel hard .
But as you apply oil or butter and let it sit for some time and let the temperature come down , the top of the power would become soft .
Look at the beautiful power and you can see the layers coming off when I'm separating the pow .
So these have turned out really fantastic .
Like I said , you can make nine or 12 or 18 power with this recipe totally up to you .
How big you want the power to be ?
Give this recipe a try and please follow all the tips and tricks and the instructions given because that could help you make a very beautiful bread , enjoy .
