Incidentally, should you have vegan dinner guests, use yeast (assuming they don't consider yeast to be animals) and replace the yoghurt with thick coconut milk, and the ghee with a vegetable ghee or peanut oil.
And remember what the poet said – “in booty there is loot, and in loot booty.” Or sump’n like that.

Is this a wheat flour or some other grain?


If you use whole wheat flour, should it be somewhat course or rather fine.. that is, more like cornmeal?

I found references, but nothing that explained the consitency.

It's to do with the amount of gluten I think - the "ata" is coarser, and a stoneground wholemeal is a good substitute. It's probably to do with whether the husks are left in or taken out.

you must have some good curry places in your area, Sam.
have a chat with the people in the kitchen (not the owner) - you could learn a lot.

So, do people want more recipes?
and if so, do you want quick ones or more like the raan?
I have a kicking beef one with so much spice in it's frightening, which cooks for a long long while and is amazingly mild at the end of the process.

I'd love to see more recipes. Truthfully, I'll probably never make raan, but having that recipe gives me ideas to experiment with other dishes. So I'd be interested in seeing recipes for more involved, exotic dishes. But if you have some quick and easy ones, I'd love to see those too.

"Ata" normally refers to coarser wheat flour, the one made by including husks as jonesthecurl said. While the fine wheat flour, also called Maida is normally used to make "Paranthas" and "Pooris", though it is an all purpose flour.

More please!

I will likely be able to try quick ones with readily available (US) ingredients sooner, but any recipe is welcome.
