Thank you Tarla ji fir your quick response. I wondered how could a recipe be given by you be so bad. I would be obliged if you could see that your members don’t put recipes using your name. Till now if I have to cook anything I type the name of the dish along with yours and have a perfect food on the table. But the rawa cake was a disaster but so much wastage of sugar , sooji etc not to mention time and energy. Regards.

I am a Tarla Dalal die hard fan. I never cook without using her recipe. Till now it has been a success story. But fir once I was disappointed. Today I tried to make Rawa cake on the gas. Followed all the instructions but the cake was hardly anywhere near to be ready in 10 mts as instructed by the recipe. I kept it on gas again for another ten mts but 🤦‍♀️ It was a disaster. Eventually it came out as very hard and inedible. In such tiring times what a waste of material , time and energy. Really sad.
