This recipe is nice but only for own home not for guests.. I tink t dal should b grinded coarsely alone n then mixed witpoha grinded again coz if mixed together n grinded it accumulated as a whole n t dal didnot grind at all... I added garam masala for taste n roasted in v lil oil.. Was v crisp n mild taste
