Last night I picked up some Masala Dosas for the first time and found it real good. They look like crepes.

You can use pancake mix to make them. The difference  is baking  powder or Baking Soda in the pancake which is also thicker.

Goes great with Maple Syrup.

1 tsp. Instant yeast

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tbsp. roasted ground geera ( cumin )

1 tbsp salt 4 cloves garlic pepper to taste

i need a good recipe using BESAN for bara n phulourie

In the above recipe, just exclude the flour, yellow split peas and food colour. Use Channa Besan instead. Most Indian groceries and Walmart carries it.

I always buy besan. I find .it is better than the  SPLIT PEAS FLOUR

been using it for abt 25 yrs..some Indian folks introduced me to it as the use it for pakoras

but i dont get the right texture for bara ..

It is a hit n miss for me..

i like it with more besan than flour

Besan is very healthy. Picked up a few bags on sale from Food Basic last week.

Heard that you can get phulouri  and doubles at the flea market on Steels.

I had a gf (she died a yr ago) who lived in Brampton n every Sat she went to that flea market to buy veggies as well as dhalpuri n phulourie

she took me there ocne n the lady was cooking right in the stal..1 big karahi with oil n frying nice round smooth phulourie..im not sure if she was a Trini…it was tasty ..ie flavorful..but the thing was mostly flour..

me nah like dem flour ting..no matter how tasty it is..

i like my phulourie with real dhal or besan/split peas flour..

i dont think she bought doubles..

but the had custard blocks..in plastic tunes like icicles !!

i bought dhalpuri to bring home..

but honestly Alima’s on Kenview Blvd makes better if not  the best  dhalpuri ( they r thin n the filling is a lot n it goes to the edge …ie no thick hard , dough at ends like most other places..

Too much dah stuff could make one explode....or implode.

Drink apple cider.  Try stretching and touching your toes by bending over. Try some yoga poses such as lying on your back and pulling your knees to your chest or light movement may give you fast relief. Phart, let it rip.

Well..shehad no idea she had blockages..

it was too late, by the time they did emerg surgery it was too late..she passed 2 days after recovering from the bi-pass

btw..thanks..never heard abt this mixture but I use ground flaxseed in soup n yogurt etc..very good for bowel movement …(constipation)

n i have a pot of ‘chai’ every day on the stove..(cinnamon sticks/cloves/elaichee/aniseed/blackpepper n plenty ginger

Boile 10-15 mins n sits on stovetop

sometimes i add a reg teabag n add evap milk..most times. Esp at nights, i drink an extra large mug of it

i recently started to drink a cup of warm water with 1 tbsp lemon juice n 1 tbop acv at nights before bedtime ..(i read this by a naturopath .ie it acts as a daily detox for liver n kidneys..u can add honey but i avoid using sugar/honey but i add 1/4 tsp of organic baking soda (no aluminium ..i use Bob’s Red Mill) to prevent the acidity in stomach during sleep
