    • Changes I made to the original recipe are,I omitted methi seeds and kalonji seeds(onion seeds) in the tadka part. Also I added roasted methi seeds powder instead towards the end.
    • Original recipe asked for amchur powder,I had no stock so added lemon juice.
    • So if you can get the above items,you can try that too.
Transfer to the serving bowl..
