    Very well written and easy to follow. Definately need to try. As for myself I use groundnut powder (not very fine) together with all the other masalas.


  9. I agreed with you

    It is looking good , but i think a little add of corainder powder will add to taste and whether it will be cooked fully if we stuff it with tamrind and others paste. As tamarind wont allow to cook properly so most of the receipes it is added at last.
