|Black-Eyed Beans with Mushrooms|
The theme for this week is potluck....we have the choice of cooking any Ottolenghi recipe or one from a former featured chef. I decided to cook from Madhur Jaffrey's Indian Cooking. Both chef and book are new to me as is the cuisine.
Based on the photo in the book, I expected the dish to be a little drier; I didn't mind that it was stew-like since it meant there was more of the delicious sauce to mop up with the Cumin-Flecked Skillet Breads I made.
|Cumin-Flecked Skillet Bread|
Much as I love these authors and their books, I could have used a little more guidance than they provided in making these breads. Was the dough made with atta flour supposed to be that soft?? Were the breads supposed to be chewy?? They were fun and easy to make and very tasty so I don't suppose it mattered in the end!
