Coconut Bread (Indian)
The wonderful Indian woman who babysat my now 23 year old son gave me this recipe - as my son absolutely loved it. It is traditionally eaten with Indian curry, and is absolutely delicious.
25g desiccated coconut
1/4 teaspoon salt
50g white plain flour
pinch of cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon castor sugar
2 tablespoons water
50g fat for frying
Place the coconut, salt, flour, pepper and the sugar in a bowl. Work in about 2 tablespoons water to mix the ingredients to a fairly firm dough.
Divide into 6 small pieces and roll each out to a round about 3 inches in diameter. Heat the fat in a large frying pan, and fry the coconut cakes gently until they are light brown on both sides.
Serve as soon as they are cooked.
