Hello Vah chef, I got a cast iron pan in the US. I am scared to use it as it needs a lot of effort cleaning and maintaining. So I stopped using it. Now After few weeks I see rust on it. Googling how to clean it gives me multiple ways in which I can clean it. I prefer the option you suggest because if I follow your steps I can never go wrong. Can you please make a video on how to clean, remove rust, maintain cast iron pan and make it non-stick rust prod? Should I use soap, salt? Should I heat on stove or microwave? I would like to use the pan to make dosa. Also is the cast iron pan sold in US same as dosa pan in India? Thank you for all the videos. For any new dish I have to see what you did and try it. 99% Times they turn good as your steps are very clear accurate and good. Also any old dish I always rewatch you do and cook with you, as I never remember the steps :) Prathyusha.

Is it a good practice to add all the available masalas at home in some particular dish which only requires single masala consigned to itself? (for eg. Should I stick to meat masala while cooking meat? or am i supposed to add masalas like chole, rajmah or chicken (available with me) in the very same dish itself?)

In the recipe where Aloo Gobi is prepared ..I noticed that amchur powder was added to the masala and raw potatoes and Gobi were added together. My query is.. 1) aloo takes longer to cook than Gobi wouldn't Gobi over cook with aloo 2) anything sour makes the cooking process much slower wouldn't amchur make the cooking process much slow tending to make aloo undercooked
