Dalcha (using the PHILIPS Pressure Cooker)







I really enjoy dipping roti, chappati & bread into sauces. The perfect sauce is of course the Dalcha. It's my mum's favourite....as its filled with beans, vegetables...it's a little spicy, sourish and truly delicious! This is my vegetarian version. If you add lamb, it will turn out super delicious!
