My first attempt at doing this. I followed your recipe and it turned out so good. Very tasty indeed. I did not have rice flour and mango powder, otherwise they would have been crispier and tastier. I added some other ingredients for stuffing, so little variation. Next time I will follow your recipe as described and it should be bang on. Thank you very much indeed, I had been thinking of doing this for a while and today I had a chance to try it. Others loved it as well.
