Yesterday, I made some roti out of my borrowed copy of A Spicy Touch not once, but twice! It's a long and fairly uninteresting story, but let's just say that it all disappeared before I could pack some away for my lunches next week.
There were only 3 ingredients to this simple recipes: whole-wheat flour, olive oil, and boiling water. I did replace a bit of the flour with wheat gluten, though, which makes it 4 ingredients, but still! This recipe is easy enough that I was able to make it by memory the second time.
The dough did seem a bit too wet and sticky, though. I had to use a lot of flour during the rolling-out process.
I didn't manage to take any pictures of my roti on the frying pan, unfortunately, but here's a photo of the end result:
mm! Hot off the stove, the roti were slightly crispy. However, after a few minutes, they got soft enough to use just like a tortilla or pita bread. Taste great, too!
:D I can't wait to make roti again- I'll experiment and add spices right into the dough.
I did bring cookies (Dreena's Homestyle chocolate chip) to school the second day, but I've decided that I should again! I chose a Post Punk Kitchen recipe this time- Chewy Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies. (wow, that's a lot of 'c's... what if they had caramel and coconut, too? and crunchy rice crisps? and crushed candy cane?)
I give this recipe 5 stars! Easy, smells great, and received rave reviews.
K. and I made a big cookie pizza with the last chunk of dough:
:) I think my friends will be happy!
Finally, today at Superstore I found a neat 'Exotic Mushroom' pack. It had several different kinds of fresh 'shrooms, from porcini to button to enoki to a pile of others. I love enoki mushrooms so much- they're just adorable! I put some in a yummy stir-fry, starring alongside onion, kale, and plain old cultivated mushrooms.
:) And that's all for now! I'll try to post again real soon, and hopefully it will be all about sprouting. I received some good questions after my last post so I'll try to write a detailed 'FAQ' entry, with detailed sprouting directions!
See you all then!
