  1. Can you also leave some data around how much does the dish weigh in grams, I.e., output…. so that it is easier for visitors to make sense of the calorie consumption, per cup of 50 grams or 100 grams as the case maybe…

    • thanks for the suggestion sashi. we use a serving portion right now to determine the calories. the entire dish is divided into the number of servings as mentioned in the recipe card. to be honest most food bloggers do not prefer to give the nutrition info as it is rough or approximate for eg the nutrition value of an ingredient will vary as per different software or programs available on the web. so i would suggest not to take these nutritional values in recipe websites as hundred percent accurate. if i had a team i would have weighed the dish in grams and updated.

  2. Great recipe, turned out great, I actually used plantains… (I live in the U.S.), wasnt sure if I should eat the skin or not, but went ahead and ate it, it was good! I also added some crushed peanuts and sesame seeds to the it!

  3. Super recipe, love the fact that it’s a no onion , garlic and ginger recipe…..
    It’s quick and easy to make.

  4. I’ve made this recipe thrice since the day you posted it, and each time it has been a superhit as always is the case with your other recipes. You’re my hero!!
    Blessings always!5 stars

  5. I have also tried dhaba style aloo paratha it was delicious..i told u before u deserve loads of thnk you and appreciation for ur hard work..:)

  6. Hi dassana

    Can you please give us the recipe of dhaniya jeera powder? I always have this doubt whether the ratio of dhaniya is to jeera should be 50 -50 or 60-40 or 70-30 ? Thanks

    • i never make dhaniya – jeera powder together. so i cannot say how much is the ratio. i grind them separately and store them in the masala box/dabba. so i use each of them individually in the recipe.

  7. Can u post some receipes related to 1nd half year old child???I really want to add some great tastes to his food…he is really getting fed up with his regular meals…

  8. Hi…..I m a big fan of ur receipes. .ur every receipe is a superhit at my home.I really enjoy cooking ur dishes with great confidence…y don’t u participate in master chef seasons? ??u l surely b a winner. ….
