    Dear Noureen, I have already tried up your recipe and it tastes really marvellous.since i like garam masala too much, i added it to this also and u know it tasted really good, that's why i suggested it.. :-)



    Hi Zeenat, i would suggest you to try this recipe first and then if you feel we can add garam masala too. It on taste after all.
