  1. Hi dassana, your recipes are superb!! !! I am not that good with cooking but your recipes are working for me.. .. My husband and kids too love the dishes I make.. .. All thanks to you. … Love you. …

    • Hi Hetal
      it depends. in our family we use these spices. i know of some families which don’t use garam masala etc during fasting. it varies from community to community.

  2. Hi Dassana! =)

    So this is the chaat masala recipe, right? I always wondered how the masala mix was done from scratch. I know somebody who makes those freshly at home but I never really enjoyed the taste that much compared to the everest masalas.

    • this recipe uses chaat masala. the chaat masala can be easily made at home. may be the people who made the masala did not use the correct spices, otherwise homemade ones are much much better in taste and flavor than the outside ones.

  3. Yum. I love all Indian potato dishes. So weird to think they are a New World vegetable, they are made for Indian spices!

  4. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe. Great to have it during the fasts or even as a quick snack.
