Hi Food (Silent viewer),

Thanks for your nice words I will send definitely Katlu and methi ladoo recipe but Katlu material is ready made I buy from market and for methi ladoo you wait for winter because I will make only in winter. If you know the recipe of Sukhadi than you made katlu easily because you add ready made katlu after then turn of the gas and if you like than add dry coconut powder before two minutes of the turn of the gas.

Have a great day !!!
