  1. Did not like it, you don’t mention in your recipe when to add, sweet peas, my daughter used to make food not what to do with the peas, she is a newbie in cooking, besides adding red chilli powder in equal amts of garam masala is a big no– no… Cause then it takes away the flavor and taste of garam masala…
