      Hi Kavan, self-raising flour and all purpose flour are not interchangeable as salt and baking powder have been added into self-raising flour, mixed evenly.

      If using all purpose flour, as a general rule, add in ½ teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of baking powder per 1 cup of all-purpose flour. Happy Cooking!
