Tarla Dalal    Thanks for asking and the app is currently not going to be done in Hindi. This is because we are slowly building our Hindi recipes as we have translated to translate the entire data base from English which is a very long and expensive process. Maybe some day we will do it.

Hi. I want to make this one for my toddler''s school function. Is it okay if I serve them after 2 hours? Would they retain the taste and flavor? If not, please suggest some other recipe.

Amazing recipe tastes exactly like the kebabs you get in restaurants. One can sprinkle chaat masala on top to make it more chat pata. Make sure that the mixture for the kebabs is not very loose or else the kebabs will break when frying. taste best with chutney or ketchup.
