Uggarane means 'Talimpu (Tadka)' in Kannada. You get the best in Bellary :)

Hello Chef. I notice with this dish that you use sliced tomato. Is that WITHOUT the tomato seed? It looks that way in your video. Is there a reason for not using the seeds?

A matter of taste really. I don't see how tomato seeds could ruin the dish.

hi Chef i am really inspired by your show. i would appreciate if you would show us some gujrati snaks like Fafda, Tikkha Ganthia, and how to make the papaya chutney which goes very well with Fafda.
