When Ghisi Piti Mohabbat sent us in fits of laughter over Naheed’s kitchen skills, little did we know we’d have craving for some real food. Home made chai paratha is desi comfort food at its best, but writer Faseeh Bari Khan turned it up a notch by naming a hard to find rarity in our kitchens – moong phalli ki chutney! Aur wo bhi taaza pissi huwi!
Oh well, we wouldn’t have it till we dug out a respectable recipe and here we have it for you! So turn on the heat this weekend, with this mouth-watering Moong Phalli ki Chutney! Make it tonight. Serving suggestion : Daal Chawal or paratha on the side!
