  • While making with palak or methi leaves more yogurt can be used.No need to use water to make a dough.
  • Garam masala , redchilli powder ginger garlic paste can be added while making the dough.
  • The cylindrical dumplings can be microwaved also instead of steaming and i strongly recommend this too.
