  1. Hi Dassana, how are you.
    Tried Gujarati kadi, crunchy bhindi, and pav bhaji, all came out very tasty.
    My pav were a bit hard, maybe my measurements were not right(how much is one cup in ounces).
    For the bhindis I added a few drops of water and the began stuck to the bhindis and no mess in the oil.

    My family loved all the recipes!
