    My mom in law always uses Tatri as khatai in curries and subzies! in fact she doesnot cook anything without Tomato + Tatri…

    I use amchoor in some subzies and some i make with garam masala and rest without amchoor and gram masaala.. never saw use of tatri at mom’s place.

    Is it harmful to have Tatri in your daily food? I get severe acidity when i eat anything with tatri…

    Is it possible to miss out citric acid as I don’t take citrus fruits. Perhaps use mango powder or rice vinegar instead?

    My friends are so impressed with the dishes I have made from your website that they think I am an amazing cook – I can’t persuade them that they are quite straightforward.

    Thank you for all your work and the care that you put into it. You are helping people all over the world to realise the importance of home cooking.

      Depending on the recipe you can sometimes just omit the citric acid, OR you can replace it with mango powder (amchoor) or lemon juice, but again it depends on the recipe which is the best alternate option.
