Recipe Tips:

  • Use fresh yogurt; do not use sour yogurt as it will not taste good.
  • To make roasted cumin powder, roast cumin seeds in a flat pan on medium heat till they turn brown in colour (while stirring constantly). Turn off the heat and take them out in a dish. Cumin seeds get roasted very quickly so be careful not to burn them. Let the roasted cumin seeds cool to room temperature. Grind them in a spice grinder or in a mortar and pestle. Store in an air-tight jar and use as required.
