If there was one thing I didn't know how to do well, it was chappatis and parathas.. I always used to wonder how some people got them so soft and if you ask anyone for their secrets, they don't seem to have any. There's nothing to it! Then why did ours turn out like flat hard chewy stones?... I'ts taken me a little research and a bit of practice, and I'm happy to say I've mastered the art now!!
When we moved into this house in March of last year, we discovered a blooming meyer lemon tree in the backyard. Without so much as a wave hello to the tree, it produced ripe fruit nearly 8 months of the year, starting as soon as we moved in. An impressive “welcome to the neighborhood” treat. This year, California produce seem to have gotten a bit confused. Maybe it was payback for my social neglect, but more likely the tree’s growth stunted from the lack of water this season.
