1-*You may substitute fenugreek seeds with kalonji/nigella seeds if you like the flavour and taste of kalonji.
2-*Rai kuria /Rai ki daal- are mustard seeds with the skin removed and then split/cracked or roughly ground and are yellow in colour,but you can also use coarsely ground black mustard seeds instead of rai kuria.
