Beth's Peach-Nectarine Muffins
These are excellent. I used 3/4 cup whole wheat flour and 3/4 cup all-purpose flour. Per other reviewers' suggestions, I added about 1/4 tsp ground ginger, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. I only used nectarines. I used a little less milk than was called for because the nectarines were very juicy (and I might have used a bit more fruit than what the original poster had in mind) -- the batter was still very liquidy but baked into light, moist, fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth muffins. For me, this made 12 smallish/regular muffins and 8 mini muffins.

Indian Chapati Bread
Wow! This was great! I added a pinch of sugar as others suggested, and I let the dough balls sit for 30 minutes. I wasn't sure what kind of oil to use. I used canola, which seemed to work, although the entire house ended up being very smoky -- we had to open doors and windows. I don't know whether that was the oil, something I did wrong, or just the nature of the recipe. Also, I doubled the recipe since we had company, but the smoke kept me from cooking all of the dough. I covered the remaining dough balls and stored in fridge overnight; they were fine the next day after sitting out to bring to room temperature, then rolling and frying.

Chickpea Curry
Made this for husband and two friends, and it went over very well. Added potatoes, (undrained) canned tomatoes as mentioned by other reviewers, and I mashed some of the chickpeas. I didn't have coriander; I'll buy it before I make it again. Used ground ginger instead of fresh. The curry ended up a little dry for my taste -- that's the reason for 4 stars, and next time I will add more water. I served it over basmati rice, but hubby and I prefer jasmine (although I know that's not as authentic). Ooh, and I made the chapati bread - it smoked up the house, but it sure added to the meal!
