  1. hi manjula aunty….i am aswathy. i am twelve yrs old. i love your website. i try your dishes…..like taco samosa,samosa,vegetable biryani and so on. they are very interesting. but today when i tried it the mix became too moist…so that i could not roll it and it was bitter too.. i dont know what to do….i added some sooji to make it thicker..

  2. Can I freeze them Abd then cook them? Leave them to defrost a bit first or partly fry them and freeze and fry them off at end because I am doing a big fair for 12 days and need to do a big batch , what do you recommend?? Please!!
