So I pressure canned some dried beans the other day. I’ve never done that before. Pressure canned, yes. But not dried beans.
Chapatis were yesterday’s method and how fun! If you have several small children and the same amount of rolling pins, they will happily do most of the work for you. In fact, they had so much fun that I didn’t have the heart to tell them to stop rolling. Chapatis are supposed to be fairly thick. Oh well. Still yummy!
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1 t melted lard or butter
1/2 – 3/4 cup water
Mix flours, fat, and salt. Slowly add water and stir until a soft dough forms. Knead a few minutes to bring the dough together and then cover and let sit 30-60 minutes.
Divide dough into 10 pieces. Roll each one into 4″ circle. Fry on a hot, ungreased skillet until bubbly and just a bit golden brown, flipping and frying the other side, too. Place in a damp towel after brushing one side with a bit of softened butter. Helps to keep them soft and pliable.
Serve traditionally with Indian food or with hummus and various toppings, rolled up taco style.
