I made the soda bread Friday, planned for Saturday, because my usual Friday Misfits box was delayed to Saturday. I just switched plans.
And here's how it worked out
And Kerrygold butter on a warm slice, for testing purposes.
Then I noticed a couple of ideas on YouTube, one for red lentil flatbread, which I liked the idea of, maybe for dosas.
Naturally I don't have red lentils. Used them in soup. A lot of my cooking ideas come from a position of scarcity.
But I do have green split peas. So I thought I'd soak them overnight and go from there. And, since I'm liable to come down in the morning and wonder what that's about, I made a little note to self about it.
I checked the channel where I saw the recipe, and found a lot of Indian commenters who like the idea, do it traditionally, and use other legumes the same way. Ah, that will include my split peas. Not so unlikely an idea after all.
You blend the peas/lentils/chickpeas, whatever you've got, with twice as much water, to create a batter, and proceed as for pancakes.
I really like the idea of caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms rolled up in these. Or spicy potatoes, as I did ages ago for dosas, or wraps with salad. Tomorrow's box has potatoes, mushrooms and salad greens, among other items, so I can plan ahead for once.
The Umami book is already taking hold!
