    Quick Tips 
    The mixture containing yeast should be only lukewarm (38-40o C). Overheating destroys the yeast cells. When yeast dough is left for rising, cover well with greased polythene sheet to prevent a skin forming on the surface. If fresh yeast is used instead of dry yeast, double the quantity of yeast.
