  2. For Garnishing Mint and Coriander Chutney and Chopped Coriander can also be added. I have not added because in Paryushan we don’t eat Leafy Vegetables.
  3. At the place of powdered sugar, granular sugar can also be used around 2 Tbsp.
  4. Use roasted cumin powder only as it will give nice flavor to Dahi Vada
