Note

  • For variations,u can use raw banana or brinjal in place of potato but cook them in prior without losing its shape.
  • U can also 3 cloves of garlic along with onions while grinding.That gives a nice masala smell.
  • You can also garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves & squeeze lemon juice if u wish.
