  1. Hi, Can u please explain how to make "Kanda Lasun Masala" as I dont have Goda masala & would love to try this... I had tried Nupur's version & loved it...urs seems different & would like to try this...Thx

  2. Hi

    Please tell me what exactly is Kanda Lasun masala/ How do you make it ? Can you buy ready made?



  3. Hi Aruna,
    I don't use Kanda lasun masala frequently. It has spicy and pungent flavor which I don't prefer in everyday cooking..So I bought it from Indian store..However if I get a perfect recipe of this masala.. I will surely post it..

  4. Dear Vaidehi,

    No sugar in this? I always felt a little sweetish tinge to this aamti.... We have a neighbor back in India - Mrs. Joglekar.... Her's used to be positively sweet!

  5. Yes, I do add jaggery or sugar in most of our curries and Dals. But sometimes, I like it without any sweet taste.

  6. So... if you were to add jaggery to this how many tea / table spoons of grated jaggery would you add for 1/2 cup jaggery?



  7. Tai.... we made it yesterday... and it was amazing...

    I had some vegetarian marathi guests... and tyanna tyanchya aaya aathavlya!

    I served this mataar usal with some wonderful Italian bread...

    Thank you!
