Dear Suparna
I feel great reading your appreciation at my Gujarat blog. It has been ages since i visited your blog.I need to catch up. I like this recipe although I am yet to develop taste for broken wheat recipes.
But I will certainly try your dhokla and lau Kofta soon. Both the recipes are very nice.
Have a nice day
