This is a fabulous recipe! I work with a gentleman from Nepal and he introduced me to a number of different foods. When I found this I was thrilled! I asked him to look it over and he said it was very authentic. If you like indian foods and are ready to try something new this is it! I only wish I could make naan well enough to do hs justice.
