Urgent: chapatti/bread:?

Featured Posts

I needed some bread and was going to make soda bread, but picked up a pack of flour for "instant bread".

Anyway, added more flour and more yeast, it's growing.  I think it will make a small chapatti and a small loaf, not sure how to make chapatti?

Too late. Chapati is unleavened.

I assumed the , "instant bread" was unleavened,... but it still rquired "time".

I can smell the bread rising, I have oven "on"

I still need chaptti to go with my curried chicken and basmati rice left over from yesterday

Chapattis are a doddle but I wouldn't start from where you started :)

if it's looking like a poor rise bung in some cheese and chilli, it tastes so lush it don t matter how fluffy it gets

Flour/water/salt, mix leave for 1/2 hour  roll flat and thin, cook fast on  a dry pan

You said you'd added yeast. Left over rice. Be careful.

cheese and Chilli have nothing to do with chapattie, sry, this is like using holly leaves to kindle a Squirrel, losing the Faith

Good God, I am an Expert, .................  boiled rice is OK if it is refrigerated overnight at Temps under 5 degrees C.

Bacillus Cereus is a toxin producing Bacillus, but only in warm conditions. eg Chinese restaurants,

Anywise, there is  loaf in the oven, and a chapatti thing, I need to work on that, all smells great, but also a lot of smoke.

I tried flour water salt previously, it did not make a chapatti.

My eyes are "stinging". I'm just going to eat wot I have, Report later.

Best ever, Chapatti is crispy, all the  rest is tasty.

Will add this as a recipe if I can replicate.

If you have flour, water, milk and yeast you can always make pikelets, go with anything, but better warm or toasted.

Self raising flour and water with a pinch of salt. Mix to any consistency and drop spoonfuls into hot fat in a frying pan. Turn once. Variations include adding herbs/tomato sauce or any other flavouring. Pufties fed many a canal camp

Finest selection of traditional bread in the country is made and sold at The Handmade Bakery alongside the Huddersfield Narrow Canal in Slaithwaite,(pronounced Slawit)  It's almost worth braving the HNC to visit it.

After eating their bread any other tastes crap and,dare I say it,even homemade.
