Add little curd, it will come out very well. Also add seasoning - little fenugreek seeds. Rajeev


easy cooking. tastes good. i just modified with chilly powder and without adding the lemon juice.


Taste was ok. But it itches the tongue. Didnt like it much overall.


very easy to prepare. i just modified it by adding chilli powder and also by not grinding chena and dal


This is a great curry. thanks for the recipe.
