I followed the recipe exactly. Hubby loved it. This was my first attempt using rajgira flour. I will try different combo suggested by other users too. :) As I was making for upvas I did no change. Next time for a snack I will try variations. Thanks all!

I tried this recipe with rajgira flour, shingara flour ( waterchestnut ), grated dudhi and other spices. It gave amazing taste, for my husband does not eat dudhi at all. But with this recipe he could not make it was dudhi in it. It was wonderful surprise for my hubby. Thanx a lot.
