I think I love everything about Italy, hot Italian men, the history, Shakespeare and their home-baked food. Though for all the other things you have to visit Italy but when it comes to food, you can get it here in India. Thinking where? In your kitchen.
Over the past years, I have learnt one thing, if you love food and want to eat delicious delicacies everyday, you have to learn how to cook it. One of my most favourite Italian dishes is dough ball. Made of flour or as we call it maida, they are yummy and full of carbs.
But who cares, food comes with its shortcoming and one of which is – all delicious delicacies are fattening. So just cook it and enjoy every bite.
I recently tried to make dough balls at home, though I was apprehensive before I started off – as I was using yeast in cooking for the first time – the result was overwhelming.
Baking requires patience, and fermenting dough requires a lot more of it! So, all you need for this recipe is patience and we promise you will love the result.
20g dry active yeast (you can buy Solar dry active yeast powder)
one tbsp sugar
120 ml luke warm water
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/1/3 cup Maida
Salt to taste
In a bowl, add 20gm yeast powder, sugar and mix. Now add very little luke warm water and mix
Make sure the water is not too hot as it will kill the yeast
Now let the mixture rest for 15 minutes
In another bowl, add maida, baking powder and the yeast mixture. Stir with a fork till it gets together.
Now on a flat surface, add salt, olive oil and cinnamon powder and knead the dough
Rest the dough for 30 minutes on a flat surface and cover it with a muslin cloth
Beat the dough and knead again
Now make small balls and smear milk over them
Place them on a baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes at 200c
Your dough balls are ready!
