      Dear Ghaelach, thanks for the encouragement.Do you have any Asian store at your locality? Some ingredients are easy to find but for gram flour powder maybe you will have to find an Asian store.

      Hello DIPSMI.

      If i can get hold of all the ingredents i've got to try this.

      As an English man i grew up with curry, naan bread and lot of other Indian foods, but now living in Germany so i don't get the chance to eat very much of it now.

      Nice hub and voted up.

      Take care.
