    if u could make these sabzis like okra , rajma, channa and similar masala things with just the general home or store bougt masala powders please try to show it that way rather than using bhunamasala.,it would be very kind of u.

      Thanks for your feedback. However, all these sabzis do required bhuna masalas. For a change of taste, you can definitely try store brought masalas.
