I personally used ghee & chicken stock in this recipe ‘cause I can’t help myself 🤣 but it’s a widely respected vegan dish and I wanted to give a nod to the month of Veganuary in some way. Happy with my past self for recording this but not posting at the time, as it’s more appropriate and suitable for now 🤪
As I say in the video, I pair it with chicken tikka or paneer usually but it stands up on its own quite happily as a dish. Let me know if you make it.
