There's different theories about this type of leavening. I do not like to make up more than two baking loads at a time. For example one load would be in the oven the other would be waiting to go in as soon as that one comes out.

Other people would refrigerate the batter that I would leave on the counter.

Other people would make the batter and freeze it or refrigerate it for days and then bake it.

I mean you are in India? The differences between our locations alone would pretty much disqualify any of my advice, know what I mean?

The recipe would make at least 24 but I'm not sure about the exact amount.

Best Baking to you.
