Hi Dk, I made this today for Aadi 18 pooja and totally loved it. It was so authentic!
I think the reason for the bread being bottom heavy is probably cos it did not rise very well while you were proofing it. When you knead the dough and let it sit in a warm place, does your dough double up in volume? If it does not rise properly, it will lead to dense and heavy breads. I am not sure if the texture of the yeast is a problem. Is it fresh? you need the yeast to be alive when you make the bread. To check it, add lukewarm water (the temp will be mentioned in the packet your yeast came in) and give it a stir. Wait for few minutes (say 5-8 min). The water should now be frothy. If its not, then the yeast is probably dead.
I am so busy "trying" not to gain weight that I havent yet come to "losing" the weight part ;)
