Khumbi Aur Besan Kibhaji

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Tea Jenny

My family love Indian, food this is one that I have made for years and I just love it on it's own with nan bread, or you can use this as a side dish or with rice. It's very versatile, you can make it thick or thin depending on your taste, we like it very hot but for this recipe I have only used 1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder but you can use a bit more if you like. This serves 4 as a side dish but if it is served as a dish on it's own I would say that it serves 2

This was very good and could be great. I think there was a little something off on the spice profile. But it was a great side dish for my Indian dinner and I will definitely make it again to have a chance to play around with the spices. I really liked the besan flour - it added a richness to the sauce I don't think you'd get with regular flour. Made for ZWT6 by a Looney Spooner.
