So far this super typhoon Usagi has been very disappointing. I’ve seen worse drizzle in the UK. But with all the panic-buying in the streets (I’ve seen empty shelves of kale, people – KALE? Seriously?!), I’ve been busy baking and getting some recipes under my belt.
This dish is simply amazing. The word onctueuse was made for it. Yeh, so it’s a French word. Sounds better than unctuous. Everything sounds better in French. Onctueuse sounds positively decadent and sinful… which this dish damn near is!
Is it a naan? Is a roti?? All I know is that it’s DAMN good. I got this recipe from AllRecipes.com when I was looking for a tasty flat bread – it was the name! Too pretty to resist. It starts off in the bread-maker on ‘Dough setting’ and then you cook it on a griddle pan or cast iron pan on a high heat, Indian-style, brushed with olive oil and garlic.
So here I am, back in The UK, which is FREEZING… I was lucky enough to get upgraded with J to First Class, courtesy of my pilot friend so we arrived, more or less, well-rested. Boy, First Class is a totally amazing experience… great food (think Wild Porcini Soup, Beef Tenderloin with Truffle Mashed Potatoes, Orange and Chocolate Pannacotta), loads of magazines and best of all, a seat reclining into a bed with a duvet and choice of pyjamas!! I felt sorry (briefly) for the all the other people stuck in Cattle… Sorry, Economy… but I slept like a fat, contented baby and made the most of it.
