dough & money[edit]

If "dough" (slang for money) derives from "bread", shouldn't that in turn reference cockney rhyming slang? Or does this come from some other lineage? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 216.75.170.81 (talkcontribs) 21:43, February 3, 2006 (UTC)

im sure dough, (interchangable with bread) meaning money comes from the cockney rhyming slang bread (and honey) - money, not that bread is needed to live!

According to the Oxford English Dictionary Online, the use of dough to mean money originated in the United States. It doesn't give an explanation of how or why that is, unfortunately. The earliest quotation the dictionary cites is from the Yale Tomahawk in 1851: "He thinks he will pick his way out of the Society's embarrassments, provided he can get sufficient dough."

dough (the drink)[edit]

Dough also is a kind of cold drink used iran and made from blending youghort, water, salt and some kind of vegetables. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 84.11.13.147 (talkcontribs) 12:22, February 18, 2006 (UTC) Do you mean Doogh, that seems like it may be pronounced a little differently than the grain paste.

leavening for flatbreads[edit]

This article currently mentions roti and naan as examples of leavened bread, while the entry on roti mentions being unleavened as the distinguishing characteristic of roti. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.120.145.66 (talk) 14:48, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

I fixed this by taking roti out of the list of leavened examples -- phoebe / (talk to me) 20:06, 8 December 2013 (UTC)

Quick Method?[edit]

What method are you referring to when you say that people in parts of central India use "the quick method," in regard to making an instant roasted dough ball or baati? Are you saying they use a food processor or Kitchen Aid appliance to mix the ground grain with water and knead it, instead of using their hands, a bowl, and a flat surface? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nomenclator (talkcontribs) 06:03, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
