I need to learn the skill of paying attention and being in the moment all of the time. My mind is always filled with thoughts and I will be doing one thing and thinking about another more often than not. So, I went shopping and I needed fructose. I headed to the health food aisle, and picked up the first packet with white ingredients I saw. I did not even realize when I packed the ‘fructose’ into the cupboard that what I had was something else. Then, in the middle of baking I needed fructose and went to the store cupboard and searched. Lo and behold, what did I find but potato flour! How on earth had this happened. It does not feel the same through the packet, and indeed, I do not like the feel of it out of the packet. Not wanting anything to go to waste, and not feeling like making the effort to go and swap the ‘offending’ item, a few weeks later I used the potato flour to make an adaption of my wholewheat chilli pancakes.

Did you read the beginning of this post? About me needing to pay attention? Well, these chilli crumpets don’t have any chilli in them – or at least they didn’t when I published the recipe. The lovely Blubee sent me a kind email to tell me I had left the ingredient out of the recipe! And, so, I am back here to edit and add the ingredient. As I say: Perfection is something to be achieved, not yet attained.

  1. They look fab, I don’t think I have ever come across potato flour, we live and learn. Friday greets to Dave and kisses to Molly & Patch 🙂 xxx

  2. Yum! I am a big fan of crumpets and like the idea of making them with potato flour, they must be very light and fluffy!

  3. That buying mistake was rather serendipitous for us gluten-free eaters, Tandy! Chilli pancakes sound like a marvellous idea for any meal, including breakfast. Thanks 🙂

    PS – I have yet to make your Carom Seed Curry because I cannot find Carom seed in our rather Anglo-Saxon-flavoured suburb, so have to make a trip to one of the more exotic suburbs in our city to procure it 🙂

    1. I get how you feel about exotic ingredients needing a special shopping trip! I didn’t even think of the gluten free aspect of this recipe so thanks for the prompt, I can make these for my dad 🙂

  4. Thanks for linking this in to Food on Friday. Did you know that your image link is broken. If you can fix it I will be able to Pin it. Cheers
