Homemade Eno Fruit salt / How to make Eno at home/ Difference between Eno and baking soda
Do not forget to check the video in the end.
And then I started flipping pages of my diary and I got something noted down there. I decided to give it a try, as it is I had no other option.
Yes, just mix baking soda and lemon juice and that’s it. And, homemade Eno fruit salt is ready.
For 200 grams of semolina, I used 1/2 tsp baking soda and on it squeezed around 1/2 lemon’s juice. You may increase the quantity of juice if the lemon is too small or not very juicy. Idlis came out perfect as you can see in the pic. Thus,
1/2 Tsp Eno = 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda + 1/2 Lemon’s juice (or 1 Tsp)
Using Homemade Eno Fruit Salt For Acidity
In 200 ml Water add 1/8 tsp Rock Salt + 1/2 lemon’s juice (or 1 Tsp)+ 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
In case you use citric acid then take 1/4 tsp of it. This ratio is for 200 ml of water.
Also, take care that you first add lemon juice to the water. This is because baking soda reacts with acid only and not otherwise. If you first add baking soda then it will not be effective.
