1. Replace rajma with chola (chickpeas) for a lighter version that works well as muffins

2. Use a flax egg instead of eggs : mix 1 tbsp flax seed powder with 2.5 tbsp water to replace one egg. Set aside for 5 mins before using in the recipe 

3. Walnuts : optional but taste very good. Please account for the additional calories from the nuts.
