Tarla Dalal    Hi Shilpa, the quality of the plain flour may vary.. as some absorbs more milk and some less, so when you make it next time, keep a check on the milk you adding to the batter. See to it that it is not very thin consistency..

Tarla Dalal    The butter used in this recipe is melted butter not soft butter or frozen, make sure it is melted and do try the recipe again. And do let us know your feedback.

This batter becomes liquid and the chocolate chunks floats in it.. The batter gets mixed up. Should I decrease the quantity of milk.
