    Salam … Hope you will be at your best!

    Please give detail of “whole spice mix”. Thanks.

    I follow your recipes because they are similar to my mother’s recipe e.g., “Mangochian” of lentil. May be because my mother is from UP like yours, once you mentioned on your blog.

    Another recipe is “Khurrian” made with new soft leaves of Arvi. I grew some plants in flower beds as some store bought Arvis had sprouted. The new growth was spectacular and reminded me “Khurrian”. I did not know the recipe. Please post this specialty recipe.

    Thanks

Mixture of all these are whole spices. I will try to post this recipe asap. Your feedback and suggestions are always welcome.
