Since 2016

The idea of dry yeast did not go very well, the balance of water temp to activate never worked for me. Fresh yeast worked well, however I find them only in quantities of 500g, and it doesn't store very well. Sourdough allows me to cultivate the wild yeast in proportions I need, when I need it !

Characteristics

Doli is a starter inspired by a traditional spiced brew fermented fried bread aka 'Puri' made in North India. Doli rises no matter what !!! While feeding just the 2-3g remaining on the jar, is enough for a feed of 40-60g (28C-30C, about 4-5 hours to peak).
