The taste was good. However it took so much time to cook carrot directly as I normally cook in a pressure cooker which is faster and helps preserves nutrients. Vegetables in USA like potato, beetroots, carrots, tindora etc, need to be pressure cooked. For some recipes, brinjals also.

Nameste! Fresh methi is not available in several parts of U.S. What are the alternative? Can suki meth i or kasuri meth i or other bhaj i can be used? Thanks

Tarla Dalal    We would not suggest using kasuri methi. Try adding any other fresh leafy greens like spinach or dill.
