Awards received with thanks!

Oh me oh my!!! I really took my time to collect all the awards that were passed to me. I am so sorry my dears. It doesn't mean that I don't appreciate them. God knows how thrilled and excited I am to receive them. But time is just not on my side lately. I had been busy...doing what? I am not so sure of! Hahaha... Anyway, here are all the three awards from these three lovely ladies. Thank you for always remembering me... May God bless you all....

From Nazarina A of Giddy Gastronome whom I really admire her work of art.

Chapati


CHAPATI

Ingredients :

2 cups Atta flour (I used the mixed Atta flour ~ brown & white)
1 tablespoon Ghee/Butter/Margarine (I used margarine)
1 tablespoon cooking oil
Enough water
Salt ~ optional
Extra margarine

Method :

1. Place Atta flour in a bowl.
2. Rub in a tablespoon of Ghee/Butter/Margarine
3. Add water bit by bit until it becomes a soft dough and doesn't stick to the hand.
4. Add the cooking oil into the dough and knead till well combined.
5. The bread taste better if made few hours ahead. Make as many small balls as you can, as big as golf ball, flatten it and roll out.
6. Heat a non stick flat pan till really hot.
7. Before placing the bread on the pan, remove access flour, if any.
8. When you see the color of the bread changes to slightly darker color, turn over the other side. Gently, press the sides of the bread with a kitchen paper or a clean towel. Let the bread puffs up, then flip over, back to the first side.
9. Once cooked, remove from heat and brush a bit of margarine on top.

Note from Tillingtan :
Also when press, make sure you press on the sides first as it will encourrage the bread to puff up.

Thanks Tillingtan of Forum Cari for the recipe.
