      Thanks for trying Harsha. Sorry that it didnt come properly. Guess rava is not enough. Try adding tbsp extra. Which bread you used Wheat/ Maida? Which flour you used all purpose/ rice flour. Did you grease the skillet with oil?

    I’ve never seen a recipe like this — and I read recipe books as a hobby. I will definitely try this!

    Is this your original spin on the traditional?
