Dough becomes tight or bad even after keeping it in the fridge, if kept like this it will remain soft for a long time

Fridge is one of the most essential things in our daily lifestyle. Be it summer or winter, our life seems incomplete without a fridge. Refrigerator is an essential tool to store and keep food fresh.  Often we keep the remaining dough in the freeze so that it does not get tight or spoil. But many times it happens that we keep flour in the fridge in such a way that it turns black and gets spoiled. Just this much flour also gets fungus or starts turning black. In such a situation, we have brought some special tips for you, by which you can easily keep the spoiled flour soft for a long time. 

 Store the flour in an air tight container

Often the flour is kept in an open utensil but whenever you store the flour in the fridge, keep the flour in an air tight utensil only.  You can do one more thing. You can also store the flour in aluminum foil or air tight container.  This will not make the dough tight and the rotis will also remain soft.

knead the dough with lukewarm water 

Whenever you knead the dough, use lukewarm water only, this will kill the bacteria present in the flour. Also it will remain soft for a long time. You can also keep it in the fridge. So that there will be no danger of fungus.  If you knead the flour with lukewarm water, not only will the bacteria present in it die, but the dough will remain soft. Now if you keep it in the fridge, the risk of fungus will reduce considerably.

Mix a pinch of salt in the flour

Whenever you make bread, add a pinch of salt to it so that it works as a natural preservative. Salt is used in many packaged food. If you are in a hurry in the morning, knead the dough and keep it in the fridge and add some salt to it. This will keep your roti soft throughout the day.  This will not spoil your flour for a long time. 

Oil the dough

The best hacks is that after kneading the dough, add some cooking oil or ghee to it. Due to this the flour will not dry and will not turn black. If you make rotis the next day also, it will remain soft.
