felt really troubled when I saw the topic of BBD#18: Quick Breads. My first though was: “But I never do quick breads. I do not LIKE quick breads.”
And the suggested variant Soda-Bread I tried once and did not like to repeat it. Bread means to me yeast and time, a lot of time! And the other recommendations like muffins, wafles and pancakes are for me no breads either, but something like cake. But this weekend I baked muffins, so I send the post to Fun & Food Blog
But then, while preparing an indian dinner, it dawns on me: chapati are quick breads! So good, that it is allowed to hand in two posts!
The recipe is in cups, what is unusual for me. But the recipe calls for cups, and that is unusual for me, too, I followed the recipe. 😉
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons Ghee (geklärte Butter)
Knead flour, water, salt and ghee. The dough should be soft but not sticky. Give the dough a short resting periode, at least 5 min, but a longer is better, because the handling is easier then.
Divide the dough into 8 pices and roll out thinly. Heat your pan to middle heat. Bake the Chapati in the pan on both sides, untill goldenbrown spots develop. If it starts to blister press the bubbles down with the spatula, so that whole Chapati bloats. (But that does not work with me.) Put on a plate and cover with a towl.
Taste good with indian Curry.
