It is a very toothsome spicy curry. This recipe includes a dumpling made of gram flour; stuffed with paneer (cottage cheese), boiled & fried preparation in a rich onion, yogurt gravy. This customary Rajasthani recipe goes well with Puri (fried flat bread), Rice or even plain chapatti (a thin pancake of unleavened whole-grain bread cooked on a griddle). Routinely people in India make this recipe on special occasions, such as festivals or for some parties. However, you can enjoy these spicy mouth-melting dumplings whenever you wish.
