  34. Hi Divya. I tried this (Gulab Jamuns) twice this week. 1st time, I used self raising flour so ignored the baking soda, and followed the measurements but there was excess milk. It came out hard! Today I tried again. This time I studied your recipe and other recipe and it came out great! I still used self raising flour, but added the soda and slightly less than 1/4 tsp baking powder. This time, once milk is added to make the sticky dough, I again had left over milk. But I kept the dough for about 20 mins. Then the dough dried up and was smooth. I added more milk to make sure the dough was sticky again. I truly feel this is the reason why it came out nice! Used the ghee and rolled into small balls. And they were perfect. Thank you so much I really appreciate your effort in giving measurements in grams instead of cups. The only website that did that.....I searched all over! Bottom line, make sure your dough is sticky before frying, if dough is not moist and sticky add milk then apply ghee! Thanks (Prem, Reader) 
  35. Hi Divya.. I tried this recipe (Plum Cake Using Pressure Cooker) and it really came out well! My husband and MIL were impressed ;) !! Got so much inspired , i'm gonna try other pressure cooker baking recipes too.. Thanks a lot for ur recipe and please do post various kinds of it. Thanks... (Sujatha, Reader) 
  36. I tried this recipe (Easy Mushroom Curry) today.. It is finger licking curry :) I am very fond of red color curry ans i got the exact color what u pictured... SLURP.. thank u for the nice recipe (Aishwarya Vivek, Reader) 
  37. Just tried it (Gulab Jamuns) now I had to add more flour and milk powder to the mixture as the dough came out first to be very soft. it came out excellent then no cracks jus perfect thanks for your wonderful recipe (Jina, Reader) 
  38. Thank you very much for the post! (Samosa - From Scratch) It came out very well! It also has turned to be my daughter's favorite due to which I have stacked the sheets ready in my freezer and is using it as an instant snack item. Thank you once again for the wonderful samosa post! Great Job and wonderful pics! (Leah, Reader)
  39. Hey Divs I tried these lovely n yummy biscuit pops (Star pops) today, everything came out very well. My daughter and her friend couldn't wait for the icing to dry, they were so excited about the pops. They kept on asking for more and more :) My daughter is not so fond of biscuits and is very fussy about eating but she seemed to be crazy for these. Only 2 pieces are left and she is eagerly waiting for next morning to finish her leftover task :) ( as she is not allowed to eat sweets after 10 pm) Thank you so muchhhhhh Divss for this wonderful recipe (Amy K, Reader)
  40. Hi Divya - I tried your recipe and gulab jamuns came out yummy. I substituted with self raising flour instead all purpose flour and didn't add baking soda. Secondly substituted with fresh cream or you can add thickened cream instead of milk and it comes out rich, soft and delicious.. other than these two changes I followed your recipe. Don't know many calories it is - Thanks a lot (Anonymous)
  41. Hi Divya. I tried this today. Cup cakes came out soft n moist. but nxt tym m gonna try these with more sugar n less cocoa. My 3 yr old son has eaten 1 whole cup cake. Thanks for this idea of making cakes in cups. can we use whole wheat flour instead of maida. will these cakes still cum out so spongy n fluffy? (Anu, Reader)

  57. Chickpea Potato Coconut Curry / Kuruma - No words to express about this flavorful curry.. My actual plan was to serve with Roti for dinner but the flavor and spicy aroma while cooking swapped my plan to Rice.Only few recipes makes us very happy while eating and trust me, every bite of this curry made us the happiest person and the most surprising part is my husband asked me to serve the same curry for breakfast along with rice ( normally he doesn't eat breakfast at home). I am extremely happy and this curry gonna be in my monthly menu for sure as per request  Unfortunately I missed all your non veg recipes coz of fasting but this curry did not let me down...It tasted like mutton gravy for us :)Thank you so much Divs:) " - (Rekha Satheesh via comment)
  58. Gulab Jamuns -Hi Divya, First of all I want to thank you from the deepest of my heart for giving us a beautiful and 100% perfect recipe. I was in search of a good recipe for gulab jamuns and for that I saw so many videos at youtube and Google but all in vain. Tried a lot but every time when I put them into singer syrup after few seconds they shrinked. Today I tried your receipt and they come out perfect. They were soft and delicious.I followed your recipe exactly and thanks that you gave measurements in grams also.I made my Dough and then I left my Dough for sometime in a plastic bag on my kitchen counter. Almost after an hour I scrambled the Dough and then add little more milk and kneaded. In short your recipe is super. Keep it up dear - (Tariq h via comment)
