If you don’t have curry powder, add 2 tsp of coriander powder, 1 tsp of red chilly powder and 1/2 tsp of turmeric powder.
To preserve the colour of turmeric Apply a little ghee to the bottom and sides of the jar before storing.
Cut down on the amount of salt used on your food by adding lemon instead to enhance the flavor of the food.

    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!
