  • I just did everything on

    I just did everything on speed 1 but I made a lot of changes according to my needs and what I had in my house, like used peanut oil, used a brown onion and a little bit of coriander, then made rice (of course needs this). My husband's got weird taste buds, he said yellow mustard seeds tasted sour like lemons. Next time I'll sieve all the liquid off the tin of tomatoes. It still works with all the differences though like curry powder instead of chilli powder.
