  28. Thanks Radhika,
    I think , there would be a raw smell if you haven't sauteed the ground paste very well.It might be the reason you hate the smell.. :)

  31. sorry to tell you that the recipe won t come well for me.I haven't added the whole paste of the ground mixture,since i find it very spicy ( 2 tsp Pepper corns) still it was not up to the mark....

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thats sad to hear.. when you are not adding the ground paste it may affect the taste, you can reduce spiciness but don't reduce the use of the other ingredients pls.. Best wishes to get a good result next time.. :)

  33. Thanks for ur reply dear.Better luck next time.
