Tips

  • serve these with rottis or rice
  • if you dont like it spicy adjust the chillie powder to suit your taste buds or substitute with pepper powder
  • if you cant find a banana leaf place them on ramekins and cover with a foil and steam for 25 minutes

PS ; I USED MINT LEAVES AS I DINT HAVE  CORIANDER LEAVES AND I RECCOMEND USING CORIANDER WHICH HAS A BETTER AROMA WHEN STEAMED
