After trying few south indian recipes, i got lot of confidence to try more and more recipes.At same time, I also realize that All these recipes have their own unique combination of spices. So it is better to try those recipes with their appropriate masalas. According to me, Homemade is best always. I hope mommies out there will definitely agreed with me.
I have seen my mom who always prefer homemade masalas which is my inspiration to try my hands on this.
I couldn’t find Marathi moggu when i was about to make this spice mix but later i found it on amazon. Marathi moggu gives very unique flavor to the recipe and later i will update this recipe.
