This can be done when you have no vegetables or tomatoes or tamarind at home. This can be done in ten minutes. When you have no time, no veggies, these are perfect to make. When you wanted to make a quick lunch, make sure to include them. And Taste great with any spicy curry or fry. And you can also drink this up.
I would say the flavor for this dish is the spice mixture we grind. So, do not add some spice powder, which will not give the exact taste and flavor. I made them for my parents when they came on the first day with Garlic okra fry. I heard about this recipe from my dad before three years. So wanted to make this for him when he came. That’s the reason for doing this. My grandma used to make this for him. So wanted to make this for him. And also I made ghee peas pulao and cashew paneer which sounded heavy, so wanted to make a light dish.
Quick to make and tasty!:) I like this combo!
