This dish can be eaten with roti for a meatless meal. We also use it as the sour for pholourie. Mango, sourie, gooseberry, fat pork and green apple can be used instead. Try it with your favorite fruit and let us know if you like it.

Add enough water to just under the five finger mix or barely cover the surface.
