    6. Hi ... just tried the recipe with a little modification. If you want real krishna sweet recipe - dont add onions , second add dosa milagai podi( idly chily powder ) on one side of the police along with finally chopped coriander leaves. To the potato mix , add 1/4 tsp of garam masala.
      It tastes exactly the same as krishna sweets masala poli.

    7. HI , THnaks for trying it sharing the tips with us ...Will try your version soon and will let you know .
