I have a question about the recipe "Pita Bread" from lapadia.
Hi, i've got a bit of a problem with the yeast. I used instant yeast and added lukewarm water as instructured but it did not form at all even after 10 mins of waiting! The climate in my area is humid although it was raining on the day i tried the recipe.
Some of the online sources I've read said that instant yeast does does not require proofing and can just be added to the dry ingredients before adding water while others indicate that you should still add water to instant yeast separately before adding to the dry ingrediens. Also, if the instant yeast does not form, it is dead!
Does anyone know which is the truth? Is my instant yeast dead because it did not form?
