Ming says: At the restaurant, we get tons of requests for this recipe, which is the basis of our much-loved house crackers. But this easily made, garlic and spice-spiked dough also produces great scallion pancakes and other treats, depending on how the dough is rolled and what's added to it. It also keeps beautifully: freeze it in quarter- or half-pound quantities in airtight plastic bags, defrost it at room temperature, and you can fix the kind of baked specialties that make a meal.
You can make the dough by hand if you like, but it's way easier to use a standard mixer with a dough hook.... Read more.
Using a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder, grind the cumin, coriander, fennel, and peppercorns and combine them in a medium bowl.
In a 5-quart mixer bowl, or very large bowl if working by hand, combine in this order the yeast, 2 1/2 cups cold water, the flour, oil, garlic, and salt.
Using a dough hook, mix at low speed until the flour's gluten is fully developed and the dough is smooth and doesn't tear easily when stretched, about 15 minutes.
Remove the dough from the machine and knead in the spices.
If working by hand, combine the yeast, flour, oil, and salt and mound the mixture on a work surface.
With your fingers, make a well in the mixture.
Add 2 1/2 cups cold water to the well and, working with a pastry scraper or large fork, gradually incorporate the flour into the water, as if you were making fresh pasta.
Work the dough into a rough ball and then knead in the garlic and the spice mixture.
Continue to knead until the dough becomes smooth, 10 to 12 minutes.
Cover the dough with plastic wrap.
If using immediately, allow the dough to rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
Otherwise, refrigerate or freeze until ready to use. Lasts about 1 week, tightly wrapped and refrigerated, 3 to 4 weeks frozen.
Use the dough to wrap miniature franks for superior pigs in a blanket. The dough makes a great pizza crust. Roll it into a 14- to 12-inch-thick circle and proceed as you normally do when preparing pizza. For a great hors d'oeuvre, cut the dough into 2 by 14-inch sticks, deep-fry them, and pass the sticks with your favorite tomato or pesto dip.

Being a frugal spender, and somebody who shops online a lot, I'm keen to hear from others how they go about cutting through all the daily sales & marketing "BS" from retailers to uncover offers which in reality offer good value. I've grown tired of the charade where retailers try to sell us everything under the sun at an apparently "unbeatable" prices. So I've begun seeking out ways to determine where the best deals are online at any given time. Once I've found a seemingly good deal on something, my basic process afterwards to confirm this is as follow: 1. Run a quick google search to price compare it against what other stores are charging (i.e. ignore RRP and focus on the actual market price). 2. If the price looks competitive, try to find ways to get it for even less (i.e. any coupon codes offering discounts available, do I get any extra discount for signing up to the online store's free newsletter, etc). 3. Check shipping rates, as these can vary wildly for online orders between different retailers (often effecting the overall competitiveness of the product). There's also other techniques I use (like where to look for the best offers in the first place), but this is probably a good starting point for now. What about you?
