Amber India, Santana Row - what was this?

fourstar Dec 13, 2007 06:09 PM

I had the lunch buffet today at Amber India in Santana Row, and there was a spongy bread-like item at the front of the line. I only remember that it was made with gram (besan) flour. It seemed steamed, and was unusual (at least to me). It was not unlike idli in texture, but was yellow (tumeric?).

Does anyone know the name of the dish and does anyone have a recipe?
