I have never made them myself. It's how they are served in most Indian restaurants in Greater Montreal.

Oh--I thought you'd made them. How do the restaurants serve them? Like chips? That's how I've eaten them...

I couldn't find the flour, so picked up chickpea flour instead. I didn't ask if the whole bean flour was made from a brand of lentils...next time. Unfortunately, the kitchen floor is being torn up--the washer is in the kitchen and apparently had leaked at some point, dry rot underneath, yadda, yadda, yadda. Once I clean up the mess from that, I might be able to get on with some baking/cooking.

How did you find out about the dry rot?

I guess you could pull out the toaster oven or electric skillet.

Well--when you remove the ceramic tiles (a couple by the washer were "sinking") and then keep ripping tiles off, you find all kinds of things, dry rot being one, moldy insulation being the other. The joys of maintaining a 100-yr. old+ farm house, although the kitchen is in the addition that was added in the '30s. So, a quick trip to Home Depot last night (4 hours with the grocery shopping), and we were set to start this morning. The problem was the coupler for the drain hose for the washer. That is now fixed, but we didn't have time to reapply the tiles we removed...have to grind the mortar off the backs first. So, for this week, there is the plywood subfloor where the tiles were removed.. I picked upa a BIG rubber mat (it weighs a ton--it is 36 x 48 inches and 1 inch thick). It fits under the washer nd dishwasher, so at least if either leak in the future, the water will end up on the mat and not the floor. I'm running the dishwasher now--did a test load of laundry and that's how we found out it was the coupler re: the hose for draining the washer. Only about 1/2 c of water, but over time, that did a number on the floor.. Tomorrow I'll be cooking. Too tired tonight.

Toaster oven is in storage. I really have been tempted to go get it for one thing--roasting garlic!

Boy, can I empathize! 160 yrs old house, I think the kitchen added on in 1901. I live in constant terror of pulling off a tile, board, wallpaper segment, and finding a million dollar problem.
