Please write ounces measurements or gram. Cup measurement is not perfect recipe. Cup is an 8 oz. We know that but please use ounces or gram. THANKYOU very much. Yes your all recipe s are enjoyable. Thanks again.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Asha The reason for giving recipe ingredients in cups is that most people buy and store ingredients. It is difficult to weigh each ingredient on a daily basis and moreover most of them may not even have a weighing scale at home. So we use a standard cup i.e. 200 ml.
