Hi Kajal,
I had left a comment before that you should show the measuring cups and spoons you use. For example this blogger has done it very well,for the recipe of pav bhaji:
http://thespicecafe.com/. It gives the reader the exact idea. Hope you will take this as constructive suggestion. You are doing a wonderful job with all the delicious gujarati recipes. I check your blog everyday for new entries. Thanks a lot.
