I had this aloo gobi, right? So I thought, “What about some Indian bread to go with it?” I saw this and thought I could make that with what I have on hand! And, Manjula made it look so easy. I can’t wait to try more of her recipes!
I used the new cast iron skillet and used a little canola oil on it. The oil smoked at that high heat (medium-high). The first one was puffing some and I did the turn around thing she did. It didn’t puff as much as hers though but I think it was because I was scared to push on the bubbles. I’ll push on them next time like she says to. I didn’t use ghee. Oh, and I used plain white flour because the whole wheat decided to expire on me.
Now, I wasn’t sure how to “serve” it so kinda used it like a tortilla a little bit. I pushed some aloo gobi on it, folded the sides a little and ate the end of the taco. Oh man, was that good! I didn’t miss the ghee at all.

Yay! More Depression Era Cooking from Clara! This lady and her family warm me to the bones. I don’t watch for the recipes so much as the stories, personality and to get a glimpse into her kitchen. The stove reminds me of my childhood. So do other little things here and there like the mixing bowls!

I stumbled on this the other day and have been sending the link to as many people as I think can be infected by its awesomeness.
What a fantastic idea! Basically, grab a video camera and go document some history in a wonderful format! It helps to be as wonderful as a character as Clara. Amidst cooking, there are little stories and glimpses into the Depression. It made me miss my Grandma and also reminded me that we all have a story that someone is interested in hearing.
Thank you, Clara for sharing your cooking and stories. And thank you, videographers, for shooting and posting them!
