I tried the receipe but also borrowed from other receipes that appealed. Soaking rice for half hour and then spreading out I felt makes rice softer and more melt in the mouth. Frying kishmis and kaju gives fancier look and taste. Lastly measures in cups would be better than in kg. But serving calculator is the best differentiator on your site.
