      This could have been a winner, but, some of the ingredients are not listed, I used my expertise to cook the dish. I used 1 tsp mustard seeds, 10 curry leaves these were not listed. There was no liquid to boil the Dumplings in due to the fact that there is so much spice, so I added 1 cup water to make the sauce. This was still a hot spicey dish and not for those unused to Indian food. I thank Pavithra for posting recipe and look forward to trying your other dishes. Brian H
