Best Blogger Tips


  1. very much tempting...did you add color or is it the color from Byadgie?

  2. looks great. Geeta aunty, I remember the yummy food you made when we visited you in Hubli too.

  3. I never use color in food.
    The byadgi chilly powder gives the color. Byadgi chilly is less spicy and you can add more chilly powder to give the thickness and color.
    Byadgi chilly (Hubli chilly) powder is not available in the US. But I have seen whole byadgi chillies available in Indian stores here (Anand brand). You can grind these and make a chilly paste.
