Hi madhura... New recipe of misal is much easier and quick than previous one. Thanks for sharing. I don't have goda masala, if possible can u please share the recipe of it.

Hi Madhura, One good thing I learnt is I do not have to sprout Mataki.It means, I do not have to plan 4 day prior if I want to make MIssal. But one thing I would like share is explanation of Godaa Masala.Godaa Masalaa does not contain garlic and onion.This contains other whole spice items like bay leaves, clove,dagad phool etc and can be used for preparing naivedya for God Garlic and Onion masala is all together different as it contains only red chilli powder,dry coconut,garlic and onion. Hope this will a very littledrop of contribution in ocean of your recipes grin
