    There is something called "Dalia" available in Indian stores which is basically roasted split chickpeas. Adds a lot to taste and also some curry leaves.  -  25 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    May take alitle time to shred the coconut,but it is SO WORTH IT! I served it with papadaums. Wonderful sweet-not too spicey-delight!  -  30 Dec 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used 1 dried red chili pepper instead of the fresh kind, and loved this! Next time I will definitely try to get the fresh peppers!  -  18 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
