This simple, delicious and highly nutritious dish, Amiri Khaman, comes from the mainly vegetarian state of Gujarat, which is well known for its aromatic spiced snacks, known as farsan. Every Gujarati housewife has a supply of home-made farsan in the store cupboard, as part of the age-old Indian custom of looking after guests, whether invited or unexpected. These wonderfully flavoursome squares make a fabulous appetizer when served with chutney, and are ideal for afternoon tea.
You can vary the topping, adding very finely chopped fresh chilli if you like a fiery kick, or use other soft herbs, such as chopped mint or flat leaf parsley.
