  1. Dear Sister
    I read the gram masala processing, I have heard of garam masala but had no idea of the ingredients , Thanks for your very clear step by step method. I shall try making it.
    Rev. Peter Sekar

    • Thank you and welcome. Yes, do try and you will definitely like the recipe.

  2. aloo chaat recipe was scrumptious!thk u for posting!

    • Thanks, Khursheed and nice to know.

  3. Further to my question from yesterday is the nutrition information provided per 100g or similar US measure?

    • No, it is not like that.

  4. Hello Dassana
    In Australia the nutrition information panel needs to show the weight of a serve. I know that the information you provide for each recipe is in the US format but there is no indication as to what the weight of a “serve” is. I thought the US had a reference amount for various foods and if you had this it would be easy to convert the information.Do you have this information.
    Your recipes look fantastic

    • Hi Neil, the program that we use for calculating the nutrition info is automated. So the information about the ingredients is already built into it. However, the program does not allow us to display this amount. This feature is not inbuilt in this program. Hope this helps.

  5. Hello Mrs Dassana,

    I am Shanthy from Singapore, firstly let me thank you for ALL your excellent recipes. I have tried 90% of your recipes.

    Need your help in the following two questions, thank you.

    1) for toasting bread, what brand do you use ?
    2) what brand do you use for Naturally fermented soy sauce ?


    • Thank you. Nice to know.

      1. I am using morphy richards for making toast sandwiches. For toasting bread, I either use an oven or toast on a pan.
      2. Currently, I am using bragg liquid aminos as I find the taste more complex and better than fermented soy sauce. Earlier I have used kikkoman brand and thats asia.

  6. hi dassana amit,
    My name is reshma , Iam following your recipes from past few month’s , thank you for sharing recipes with photos.
    I want to ask which cups do you use , should I buy from amzon black plastic color cups.

    Please reply as soon as possible ,
    God bless you.
    Thank you.

    • hi reshma, welcome. i use steel measuring cups. steel cups have a long life in terms of wear and tear. sometimes you may need to add hot or warm liquids to measure in the cups, so better to avoid plastic. i have been using the same steel measuring cups for more than 5 years now. thanks for your kind wishes.
