So Diwali came and Diwali went, house was cleaned, savories and sweets were made, new clothes and other stuff were brought, lights were hung, beautiful rangoli's were drawn,gift were exchanged,crackers were burnt, neighbourhood love felt, hearty laughter with friends experienced, family bonds strengthened, memories were created and above all thousands of calories consumed. This year it seemed more festive then ever love ,love ,love the festive season.

Today's recipe is courtesy Tarla Dalal's website, tried this a few days ago and just loved it. So here goes Mrs. Dalal's recipe

Method 1.Mix the fennel seeds, mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, nigella seeds, cumin seeds and asafoetida in a small bowl.
