Recipe Notes
  • the reason of making masala paste is it gives a nice aroma to the recipe. You can add tomatoes as in this. In case of adding tomatoes, add 1 medium size tomato for this measurement.
  • you can add 1 tsp of tamarind juice while boiling misal. It will give light tanginess to the recipe.
  • If you are unable to find goda masala powder OR misal masala powder, then use regular garam masala. If using garam masala powder,use it 1 tbsp only.I never tried this recipe with garam masala powder.
