Since we are doing Navratri fast at home, I am making food only for kids. Mostly easy and different types of food which they love to eat. Though this morning I was in the baking mood, I was not very sure how my yeast will react in this weather. It was really gloomy, fall type weather. Baking normally doesnt give desired results in this type of weather… Because I wanted to bake something I still went ahead with my plan and started making the dough. In the process, I was really pleased to see that my yeast was working and my dough has wonderfully risen. Another one hour and my Foccacia was on the table for the kids. They usually like to eat by dunking it in extra virgin olive oil and just out of the oven this wonderful Foccacia was perfect for that.
