“Spice” Spotlight: Wild garlic
Wild garlic has similar benefits to standard garlic - effectively reducing high blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels; and reducing susceptibility to colds and viruses. Wild garlic grows in wooded areas and can be easily grown as an additional herb in your garden.
- Sieve the flour into a large bowl and add the salt.
- Make a well in the flour and add the oil and wild garlic.
- Stir the mixture then slowly add a little water at a time, mixing between additions.
- Stir to form a smooth dough that holds together and leaves the side of the bowl clean. (If too sticky, add a little more flour; if to crumbly add a little more water.)
- Take the dough out of the bowl and kneed on a clean, floured surface.
- Divide dough into 12 balls
- Lightly coat one ball in dry flour
- Flatten the ball and roll to a circle (add extra flour if sticking to the rolling pin)
- Heat a small frying pan (griddle) on a medium heat and add chapatti
- When bumps form across surface of chapatti, turn over
- Once second side is cooked to same as first, turn it over again.
- After a few seconds, press down the puffed chapatti with a spatula
- Once fully puffed, take out and serve immediately or store in a kitchen-towel lined container (this will keep the chapattis soft and stop them drying out).
Chapattis originate from Bengal / Sri Lanka & other Dravidian regions of the Indian subcontinent
