    I love zunka. It pairs well with rotis, puris and bhakris. Love the addition of aloo. I usually make with bell peppers / capsicums only.

  2. 5 stars
    This is a quick and flavourful recipe. The combination of potato and capsicum is always a great hit. Addition of gramflour is something I have not tried. Looking forward to trying out this recipe.

    I usually add onion and garlic to all of my savory recipes, but with all of the spices, the onion/garlic was not even missed! So delicious!
