Sometimes cooking requires a lot of pre-preparation. Make masalas ahead of the time. Stock the masala in the freezer till not required for cooking. This method will save a lot of time

To allow salt to pour easily, put a few uncooked grains of rice in your shakers to absorb moisture

    It was delicious! Next time, I would add tri-color peppers so it doesn't look too green! Oh and I paired it with raita!
