I first had it at my sis-in-law's place and wanted to try it out on my own, despite the fact that I'm not much of a Shan Masala fan. But I guess this recipe turned out good and very spicy. Also I just put a hint of the masala and not the entire packet as the instructions suggested.
The one I had at my sis-in-law's place was very spicy, I guess she emptied the whole packet...considering the fact that she is expecting and wanted it as spicy as possible!
