Easy Yeast Free Focaccia: Semolina Bread


yeast free bread recipe
Hello again! This time it is desi focaccia again!

You have already tried my previous semolina focaccia recipe, isn't it? I loved that desi focaccia because I did not use any leavening agents there - no baking powder, no baking soda, as it was a naturally fermented batter. Here's the recipe if you are interested.


Nevertheless, I have come up with this desi pizza bread recipe upon request.

I hope you're enjoying my food experiments and innovations. It's been a while since I started baking yeast-free breads at home, for I realize not everyone uses yeast. It is a cause of serious allergy in some people. Some of you do not use yeast due to your religious belief. Fair enough!

We have this yeast free semolina focaccia recipe for you. I call it desi focaccia with semolina, because frankly, I have never tasted focaccia outside.

As far as my research shows, focaccia uses a generous amount of olive oil, which enhances the taste and gives the Italian bread a distinctive flavor and texture.

Since I have not used maida or white flour in the recipe, which is a standard bread ingredient, this is my humble yeast free focaccia for you.

Does it disappoint in taste?

Na, the pizza focaccia recipe doesn't disappoint.

I served the savory pizza focaccia bread to my neighbor and they enjoyed it thoroughly!

This is one easy pizza recipe no yeast that even kids can churn out within minutes. But yes, I would like to mention that I did not have unroasted semolina, so had to use roasted alternative. So the focaccia bread crumbled from one place while slicing.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
