  • I have used half cup of regular yogurt. You can use low fat yogurt.
  • If you are health conscious you can skip the tempering part(step 3 & 4).
  • For garnishing I have used grated carrot, you can also use pomegranate seeds, chopped raw mango, chopped & de seeded grapes etc., Choice for garnishing is endless. You can choose as per your taste.
