ingredients 1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1/2 cup Cornmeal
1 1/2 teaspoon Curry Powder
1 dash Salt
1/2 cup Butter (cold)
1/3 cup Cold Water
instructions For the Pastries: In a large bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, curry powder, and pinch of salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water until mixture forms a ball. Roll the dough into a log, sectioning it off into about one half (for easier handling).
