i followed this recipe for my first ever kovakka thoran yesterday and it came out pretty good :) i didnt have amchoor with me, but that didnt seem to ruin anything. also,as a "beginner" to the cooking scene, i was confused with whatever you meant by splitting the gerkhins into 4 - i just cut them in small circles like you would with beans...
