I had my heart set on making chappati today. Chappati is an Indian style grilled flat bread also called roti in other cultures I went to a store on 28th st. which will remain nameless to buy chapati flour and a tawa (a flat pan). When I got home to start making the bread. The bag of flour had what my mom calls "weevils" which are little black bugs. Damn it!
The chappati flour only cost me 5 bucks plus subway fare but still. Well that's not all. I was not going to let those weevils win, I was going to make bread away. When I have my heart set on something it's really hard for me to shake it. Plus there was only a few weevils so I decided to just sift them out but when I did that I discovered alive and dead white worms, a mung bean and a moth flew out the bag and was flying around my apt. ok I will not be making bread today. The weevils wins! I thought briefly about taking a photo of the bugs and the mess I made in the kitchen but I was too upset, disgusted and mainly disappointed. I'm going to travel to Jackson Height Queens tommorow to shop at Patel Brothers a popular Indian supermarket. I have never been there, but heard good things about it. I'll let you know how that goes.
