  1. I can have this curry with some rice or with crispy dosas..

  2. Hello Suji,

    I made this curry and it tasted bitter. I think you meant fennel seed powder rather fenugreek powder. fenugreek is uluva. I should have used my instinct. Anyways, nice recipe.

    1. Disni, I am extremely sorry, see this happens when you dont review what you write, actually its fenugreek powder only but insted of 1 tsp its actually 3 pinches. Hope i wont make these dumbos again :).
