“Found this in our local newspaper, the Orlando Sentinel July 25, 2012 - they ran a special section on Vegan Indian cooking. In "Vegan Indian Cooking" by Anupy Singla, she suggests "try this on raw veggies, sprinkled over boiled potatoes or stir a pinch into your plain soy yogurt." Look for the mango powder, black salt and carom seeds in Indian groceries or spice shops.”
