Recipe Notes

  • In this recipe, I have not mentioned the ingredients in grams or ml, because here we have to measure everything (both dried and liquid ingredients) from the same cup or katori. You can take any cup as big or small but make sure the ratio of all the ingredients remains same. The recipe can be multiplied or divided as per the requirement.
