Bindi Masala

It’s boring to have regular routines with your main-courses and its side dishes, right? It is like, you are having rice with curries, chappathi with aloo bhaji, dosa with chutney etc. Thinking of something different? Healthy, tasty and easy-to-cook.... And good to go with chappathis, dosa etc?

Here you are with delicious and easy to prepare bindi masala. It can also be the lunch box side dish for your school-going kids. Turn it to a roll too... they would appreciate it. Just try this one.

For this recipe, I have freshly prepared garam masala. But you may also use the one commercially available too.
