- You can add more or remove onion, tomato and potato as per your choice.
- Use your favorite masala like chat masala, pao bhaji masala etc.
- You can add your favorite veggie in it but i wanted it to be legume based.
- How much water should be used to cook rice depends upon so many things like quality of rice, size of vessel etc, so add water and cook accordingly.
