Roti: dhal pourie

1 lb. flour
3 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp tumeric
1/2 lb split peas
3 cloves garlic
2 or 3 tsp. ground cumin

Boil split peas with tumeric, salt and garlic. Do NOT allow to
get too soft. Firm but soft enough to flatten with your fingers.
Pass through a grinding mill. Make sure there NO whole grains left
or these will busrt the roti later. Add geera and salt to taste.
Cool. Knead flour with baking powder and a pinch of salt, to a
soft dough. Rub oil over dough and leave to rest. About an hour
should do. Cut dough in to 6-8 pieces. Shape into balls and leave
to rest for 15 mins. Flatten the ball in your hand and place about
about 3 tsps. of the peas then make into a ball again. Heat the
baking stone or griddle to no more than medium heat and brush a
little vegetable oil on it. Roll out the dough into 8" circles.
Place the roti on the stone and brush with some of the veg. oil.
when its starting to brown turn it over and brush again. When the
other side is starting to brown it should start to swell. Enjoy
with any curry.
