Hi kajal,
Looks like I am the first one to comment..Here in US everyone had a long weekend for the easter.This recipe of khichu is totally new to me..I had not heard about it or seen or tasted it.It looks tasty though and i will definitely try it.
And the reason why I dont have a food blog is because I dont think I will be able to do such a good job as you do.
I see asha from foodie's hope comment here but i cant comment on her blog for some reason. Tell her I love her blog a lot. Thanks.

when leaving Khichu ( also known as paapdi) out in the sun why does it crack. What I am I doing wrong

Anonymous said...

Hi Kajal,

Thanks a lot for sharing this recipe with us and that too with photos!

I really appreciate your hard work and efforts to share recipes. Keep it up.

Take care,

Kajal said...

Hello Nidhi,

Thanks for appreciating my work.
Nice to see your lovely comment dear.

Have a great day!!!

Kajal said...

Hi RJ,

First of all thanks for comment. If your paapdi crack in sun that meaning your rice flour is not cook well. Try to cook in low flame over the water for more time. If your flour is cook well it doesn't crak in sun.

Good Day!!!
