Prep time:5 mins
Cook time:20 mins
Makes 3-4 servings

2 cups plain yogurt(whisk it and set aside)

salt to taste
2 tsp chickpea flour

1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds
1 dry red chili
pinch of hing

-In a sauce pan add all the ingredients ,whisk everything togetherĀ  and place it on the stove on medium heat and bring it to a boil.

-Simmer to low and allow to boil for few minutes.
-On the other side heat a small pan on medium to low heat add all the seasoning ingredients.Allow them to splutter and fry until slightly golden brown.

-Adding chickpea flour at the beginning of the stew helps the yogurt from not curdling due to heat.
