Can I use fresh yeast for the recipe instead of dreid. If so, will the quantities be the same?

I think that you use dry yeast at 1/2 the quantity of the fresh yeast, depending upon the quality. I am not absolutely sure! Fresh yeast needs proper storage and looses strength if not stored properly. It's strength can vary. Whereas, dry yeast lasts much longer. I keep my opened packet/tin in a freezer, otherwise it lasts about 3-4 months.

See this site, it has good information:

Others on these boards might be able to give you a better answer.

Opps, I forgot! I should have said that you can use fresh yeast in making nans. The ponit is to raise the dough.

At a push I've made Naan's with no yeast at all (didn't have any).. so put a good spoon of baking soda in, some yoghurt, oil, salt and pepper... worked out pretty well...

Yes, it will work. If you use active yoghurt in making the dough, instead of water, and then leave the dough to tise for 5-6 hours, I am sure that will work too. Many ways to kill a cat ;-)!

"skin a cat"... LOL but yes many ways...
