HBin5 100% WW with Olive Oil

So this is definitely not gluten-free, but my timing with baking was off here, so we had a gluten-for-grown-ups day :)
















My Aloo Paratha. This reminded me of some samosas I'd made from an old Vegetarian Times cookbook, except this was better. I used Penzey's Maharajah Curry powder and about 1/2-3/4 tsp salt (down from 1tsp). It was flavorful, almost a little salty, I'd reduce the salt to 1/2 next time. This is something I'll make for myself again!















My steaming Southwestern Focaccia with Roasted Corn and Goat Cheese. This was the favorite of the guys in the house. I love goat cheese, so I was looking forward to this one, too.















My loaf that I rushed and didn't allow to fully rise and then also got cut before the photo (so my sad little loaf and the tiny photo so hopefully you can't see quite as well just how sad the loaf is). It might not be a fair judgment from this loaf, but I think we liked the master and the wwflax better as loaves. The ww with olive oil is a great base for flatbread, though - I'm sure I'll use it again!

Love how thin and crispy your crust came out on the Aloo Paratha. Looks so good! Now that I think of it, I bet J. would like this in his lunch too and I bet it would heat up in the Microwave just fine!

That first photo of your Aloo Paratha looks beautiful!

Your photos look wonderful. I love the Aloo Paratha.

I agree this bread makes better pizza and flat breads. Your aloo looks great!

Ezzie said...

Both look great!

Aparna said...

Both your flatbreads look very good. And if you think your loaf looks sad, you should have seen mine. It was so bad I couldn't bring myself to take a picture of it! :)

Danielle said...

Petra said...

Old Pop said...

everything looks good to me.

Jenny said...

Yeast breads just won't be rushed, I guess. Your others look great, and we wouldn't have had a clue anything was wrong with the loaf if you hadn't told on yourself!

Thanks for the tips. I didn't get a chance to make this dough. I'll mark my book that it's great for flatbreads.

Great looking! I love samosas, too!
