  1. hello anuja and hetal
    i have a doubt, store bought coconut milk is bit sweet side is that ok to use in this recipe?

    1. Hi Priya,

      Yes, you can use store bought coconut milk. It usually does not have added sugar. The sweetness comes from the coconut.

  2. Hi, I am a guy living away from home and was eating mostly non-Indian good but after discovering your website I have started to cook Indian food. Your recipes are very easy and delicious. Thanks a lot and keep adding more stuff. I wish you both all the best of luck in everything.
