    Mariya, this recipe is amazing. I made these at home and everyone just loved it! Thanks a lot! Its easy and a treat for everyone!


    Thanks for this recipe!! I tried it & it was good... only problem was: it was not so soft as Haldiram's. I might have cooked it for a longer time. Can u please suggest me the cooking time? my little son is demanding more & more but he wants it to be softer & smooth!!
