Comments:   Shakira, With regards to your question on shimla mirch, it is not necessary to use this, here in england and to my knowledge pau bhaki masala does contain this which is what we use in the UK. Also this is my father´ s recipe, who is from the very streets of Bombay where this favourite street food is sold.
