The best part of your recipes is the measures. I have been following your recipes since 35 yrs. At that time we had to buy your books which I did. Your recipes were so good that whatever I tried turned out well and of course they still do. I made the pizza base and it turned out well. Incidentally that was the very first Tarla Dalal recipe I tried. So glad for the net and your website.

Tarla Dalal    Fruit salt will have to be sued to get soft spongy dhoklas.

It''s so quick and when I read i was super excited to try. But I don''t know what went wrong but the batter was thinking by adding buttermilk. It seems smooth for second and when I pour there are lumps. Again I need to add buttermilk. And final dhokla were not as fluffy plus it is a little sticky. Please tell me my errors

It was a very easy and tasty recipe. Thanks for the recipe. I loved it. And instead of chilli paste I used red chilli (not dry chilli, ripened chilli) and also onion.

Ashritha S Rao    Thank you. I''''ve been following your website from last 1 year. Ive tried a lot of them, bcz from last year only I started cooking. After all these years of hostel life, it was not easy to learn cooking. Hope to see more of other Asian like Korean and Japanese veg recipes.
