Tips For Gluten-Free Breads:

The chickpea and rice flour breads don’t need to be kneaded as these flours do not contain gluten. For this reason, the texture will also be different from ordinary bread. They are quite dense and moist. Don’t leave the mixture to rise for too long. Because there is no gluten, the bread will collapse if it is over-risen.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
