“This is SO good. We like to dip pita or parantha bread in it. Bet it would be good wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla. Our friends from India dip hot dog buns in it. It makes a lot - freeze some for later. The spice packet I buy at an Indian grocers or Middle Eastern store. The label says Badshah Bombay Bhaji Pav Masala. It comes in a 3 1/4 oz pkg. Use half of it. I have no idea how many people this serves.”
