Laxmi Sourdough Starter

Ref: 24

Contains Gluten
Non organic

This pack contains enough sourdough starter when activated to make one large loaf of bread or to create a starter culture that given love and attention, will last forever! Full instructions and recipe included.

Laxmi is the Hindu Godess of wealth, fortune and prosperity as well as the embodiment of beauty. Our Laxmi sourdough starter was begun in our kitchen in Goa and is made from 100% stoneground Indian Atta flour. It is a particularly vigourous starter suitable for all forms of wholemeal flour. As the starter was created in the post-monsoon season in Goa it is well suited to perform well in high ambient temperatures.

{SUMMARY}This is an easily maintained and robust starter for those looking to bake bread with wholemeal wheat flour and blends. It should be fed every 24 hours on a (1:1) mixture of wholemeal or Atta flour and cooled boiled water.
{ACTIVATION}1 Empty the packet into a glass or plastic container of at least 250 ml capacity.
2 Add an equal volume of bottled or previously boiled and cooled water.
3 Stir to mix into a paste, and allow to stand in a warm place for 30 minutes.
4 Mix 25 g of flour and 25 ml of water together to form a paste and add to the starter
5 Stir the mixture and stand in a warm place until it has doubled in volume, usually 24 hours.

If the mixture appears foamy with bubbles on top, it is ready to incorporate into your bread recipe! If not, don’t worry, the starter can take longer to activate depending on how warm it is. If nothing has happened after 24 hours, feed it again with an equal volume of flour and water
