Hi Trupti:) Long time, how have u been? I posted about the arusuvai packets you send , I still use those powders in any dish I want spicy:) Thanks to you, I am gonna make that chutney soon with your recipe as its getting over:) One question, can I use fresh onions instead of onion powder? Or does it spoil it?
