Serves 2

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes


  • 2 cups/500ml of water

  1. In a cold pan, mix the water, yogurt, chickpea flour, sugar and salt until smooth. Place over a high heat and allow to come to a boil, stirring frequently. 
  2. When it reaches a boil, reduce the heat to low, and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.

Notes: We served it with steamed rice and chopped coriander, but it’s great with paratha, or any flatbread.
