Hi Shalini! Baking powder and baking soda are different, but the purpose they serve is almost the same. I often substitute one for the other or even use a combination of both, depending on the food i cook. About vanilla extract and essence, what I have understood is both are the same. The rest I think the chef will only have to answer! Tk cr.
