From western India via Uganda comes this vegan curry made irresistable when topped with crunchy fried noodles known as sev
This is an ancient Gujarati dish from the Kathiyawad peninsula, where my ancestors are from. This recipe was carried by my great grandfather in the 1940s when he set sail for Uganda with his big ambitions and his sev sancha (a little machine that’s used to make chickpea flour noodles).
The recipe travelled again decades later, in 1972, with my grandparents when they left Uganda for Britain. It was passed on to me by my mother last year, and now it’s yours for safekeeping.
