Chapati Bread

Flatbread, adapted from MelindaLee

2 1/4 cups, whole wheat flour
1 cup, all-purpose flour (plus more for dusting)
1 teaspoon, salt
1 cup, warm water
herbs, garlic, chopped onion, dried chilies may be added...



Mix together both flours in the bowl of a food processor; add the salt and, with the machine running, pour in the one cup of warm water. Process for about 30 seconds, then remove the cover. Dough should be in a well-defined, barely sticky, easy-to-handle ball. If it is too dry, add more warm water a tablespoon at a time and process for 5 to 10 seconds after each addition. If it is too wet, which is unlikely, add a tablespoon or two of flour and process briefly.

With floured hands, shape the dough into a ball, cover it with plastic and allow it to rest for at least 30 minutes. (At this point, you may wrap dough tightly in plastic and refrigerate it for up to a day; bring the dough to room temperature before proceeding.)

When ready to grill, pinch off a piece of dough (walnut-size to golf-ball size, according to your preference) and roll it out as thin as is practical (see introductory note). Dust the rolled-out pieces lightly with flour to keep them from sticking and cover them with plastic wrap or a damp cloth while you roll out the remaining dough. (It is O.K. to overlap them a bit, but do not stack them.) Or just roll as you grill.

Grill the chapatis until they start to blister, char and puff up a bit, about a minute or so. Turn and repeat. Serve immediately.

Donut Muffins

•1/3 cup shortening
•1/2 cup sugar
•1 medium egg
•1-1/2 cups flour
•1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
•3/4 cup milk
For The Topping:

•1/2 cup powdered sugar
•1 teaspoon cinnamon
•1/4 cup melted margarine

In a mixing bowl mash together the shortening and sugar. Add the egg and whisk it all up until it is smooth. The shortening gives this recipe it’s special texture. Measure the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg into the bowl. Pour in the milk. Mix the batter with a whisk until it is smooth.

Drop the mixture into 12 oiled muffin cups. Make sure not to over fill the muffin cups, 1/2 to 2/3 full is full enough. Bake the muffins at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until the muffins are brown on top. Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool slightly.

Mix the powdered sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.

Take the muffins out of the pan. When they are cool enough to handle, dip the tops of the muffins into the melted margarine. Then dip them into the powdered sugar/cinnamon mixture. Arrange the prepared muffins on a large plate and serve while still warm.
