Hello ma''am. I tried this receipe but with a twist. I added curry leaves, red chilli powder, jeera powder, dhania powder and soya sauce. And it went really good.

By adding 1tbsp of soya sauce and reducing chopped tomato it gets a real yummy taste. Which can be improved done by adding chilli sauce instead of chilli.

Tarla Dalal    Good to see you make your own changes. That is super and also helps others look at the recipe in a different way.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Vishal, Add a sachet of Maggi masala or simply skip adding seasoning cube.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Neha, Seasoning cube is available everywhere but if you do not yet find it, you can add few spices like chili powder, garlic powder, ginger powder, etc...
