    Chanced upon your blog page 2 days back and what can I say. Tried 2 recipes, Punjabi Bhindi Masala and Achari Turai with good results. On my way to prepare Mughlai Egg Curry. I have to make a choice between Black Pepper or Black Cardamom and I plan to go with the former. A correction needed? Best, Chan
