hi jeyashri,my recipe came out good.but in the end it tasted sour.I don't know why.can you throw some light what would have gone wrong?
The reason may
Either the variety of tomato may be sour or you must have added less salt.
Hi jeyashri ji, I want to make this dish right now but I don't have kitchen king masala. Can u suggest something else in place of that..
You can add garam masala too.
Hi mam… very glad to follow it blog… thank you actually. What is tat kitchen king masala???
Thank you for the message. Kitchen king masala we get in shops like garam masala. IF you don't get in your place replace with normal garam masala
