1. You can make your own garam masala in the TM. Look for recipe in the recipe community.

2. This recipe is super low calorie and healthy. The trick is the spices must be toasted well (until your whole kitchen is fragrant - golden brown spices)

3. Vegetable Oil can be omited. We cook without oil at home. This does not compromise the flavour, but needs a few tries to get it right as the vege/spices need to caramelise over high heat without burning
