      Sesame seeds are different.

      I cant say what exactly do poppy seeds do to the flavor. They are difficult to be ground to paste as well. I always skip them, unless i am making sardai.

      mall, I think the "nasha" is that poppy seeds are the source of opium, but I didn't realize it was enough to make them illegal in some states!

      Do you think you can make it without the seeds and without a substitute?

      my mom makes something called khash khash kee chutney (its white, pasty, grainy, spicey, chutney consistency stuff) that she serves with ghee lagee baisan kee rotee. You got to eat that stuff to appreciate that. In my humble opinion, that combo is much better than maki kee rotee and saag combo.
      My father believed that if the world found out who I really was they'd reject me out of fear.

      I dont but I am sure if Niks read this, she can post the recipe cause she knows. I will ask her anyways to post.

      well i definately wouldnt want to take a chance when i know my spouse and i are not on the same page .. imagine getting caught (which is HIGHLY unlikely cuz its not something to get caught about), and having your hsuband say to you.. i told you so

      just find a substitute. ...

      Oh I am really sorry. But I meant to write "cant" not can in the first post. I really do not know any alternative. Thousand apologies.
