Important tips for this recipe -
1. It is crucial to roast Cumin seeds and Black Pepper. Doing so would minimize the moisture content in them and as a result the recipe will last as long as 1 year.
2. Do not grind Black Pepper and Cumin seeds along with Tamarind and Pomegranate. Grind them separately and then mix the same with ground Tamarind and Pomegranate at a later stage. This is primarily to ensure that all the ingredients grind well.
3. As and when you prepare a fresh ball of GhataGhat keep adding it to the bowl of powdered sugar. Doing so would ensure that they do not stick to each other. If you keep them aside and add them together into the powdered sugar there is a high probability that they'll all stick together.
4. We've added 2 table spoon of Lemon Juice into this recipe. You may choose to vary the amount of Lemon Juice in order to ensure that your dough is of the same texture as shown in the video.
And as always, Happy Cooking! 🙂
