Cannot wait to make the Courgette And Chick Pea Filo Pie. If serving a sauce/condiment on the side, what should it be?

Our answer

Nigella's Courgette And Chick Pea Filo Pie (from HOW TO BE A DOMESTIC GODDESS) is Iranian influenced, with a rice, courgette (zucchini) and chickpea filling that is perfumed with aromatic spices. The pie is best served warm, when the buttery filo pastry is at its crispest.

A tomato-based sauce or salsa would be the best condiment to serve with the pie as tomatoes go well with the turmeric, cumin and coriander spicing. If you like a hot and spicy sauce then we would suggest trying Nigella's Jumbo Chilli Sauce and this sauce should be served cold or at room temperature. If you prefer something with less kick then you may like to try A Simple Salsa, which can be served warm, cold or at room temperature.
