      Walekumasssalaam huda…Thanks for reaching out to us… You can add 2-3 tbspns of tomato puree instead of the tomatoes… Hope your question is answered…

      Its a ready made masala powder which is available in indian markets but, i would say the dish taste delicious even if mutton masala powder is skipped as we add garam masala powder into it. It is just an optional ingredient which could be skipped if you don’t find them at the stores…Thnks fr the question attia…

    • asiya says

      1 cup is equal to about 150ml of yogurt…Hope I have answered the question and hope you enjoy making it….
