    Some Tips/ Suggestions:

    In this recipe instead of lime juice we have used full lime after removing the skin. The reason is - lime/ lemon tastes better with the pulp. Feel free to replace lime with lemon juice.


    You can also add some grated ginger/ a pinch of dry ginger powder to get a different flavor.

    Add some chaat masala if you wish.
