Kajal said...

Ohhh.....My dear Mansi Desai, Thanks for your wonderful words. I also yes the same filling for Kachoris but when it fry then it to much oil so reduce the oil here. Also we made Kachoris from green Tuver dal. It is very healthy and good in taste.

Happy Weekend :-)

Kajal said...

Hellooooo Priyanka,

Ohh…you miss lilva-tuver my dear. Don’t worry but get other good things there which we not get here. Thanks for your lovely comment my dear. You can’t see my blog in this month otherwise your favorite lilva-tuver kachoris is here and you just watch it and not get it. Just kidding.:)))

Kajal said...

Hello Neelam,

Thanks for your nice words my dear but you care to make smooth paste. Ok wait for your green paratha post.:))

Kajal said...

Hey Shankari,

Thanks for your nice comment my dear. I have made green peas dhokla with besan flour but I use eno fruit salt. If you not like to use eno fruit then you can leave the besan flour and butter milk batter in sun light for more than 8 hours. If you get fragmentations in flour than you made nice dhokla without fruit salt. Also if you add puffer rice with besan flour then you get nice soft dhokla but I have not any single attempt with this method.

Kajal said...

Hello Aparna Rao,

Good to see your nice words.
Thanks a lot!!!!

Kajal said...

Hiiiiiii Sagari,

Oh........you try sooon then also send it for me my dear because when I made this the some gusts at home and I don’t get enough for me.:)))

Kajal said...

Thanks a lot!!!

Kajal said...

Helloooo Usha,

When I see your comment and you red rose I always feel very nice. Thanks a lot for your lovely comment.:))

Kajal said...

Hello Anonymous,

If green peas then not need to soak or boiled but if you have persevere green peas then let it be warm up to room temperature so it is grind very well. No need to add any thing for paste. If you add water or boiled then paste is like gravy and you not make enough dry paste for paratha. So you have no need to soaked or boiled for making parathas.

Kajal said...

Hello Amna,

Thanks for your beautiful words. Thanks a lot!!!

Kajal said...

I am married to a man who is not Indian himself but is in love with Indian lifestyle, Indian films to Indian food. I tried my version of Indian food (copying from cook books) but it never tasted right. Now thanks to you Dear Kajol and your step by step postings, my husband finally would be able to taste the real Indian kitchen.
Big Fat Thank you
