    Dear Jaishree,

    I am very glad to see a new thread on Rajasthani recipes. The vivid colours of your state is truly reflected in the cuisine. Dal-bhati is a food that makes me and my husband come alive. We get to eat it very rarely since I did not know how to make it. I will definitely try this out and post a feed back.

    I wish you will post more Rajasthani recipes in future. It is always a pleasure to read your writings- be it in recipes or in the form of your musings.

    affly
    Vidya

    Dear Jaishree,

    This is something totally new to me. It is fascinating and I shall try it out one of these days.
    The variety of cuisine in India never stops to amaze me. I am getting more and more drawn towards Indian cookery these days and have almost stopped looking at Thai, Italian etc etc!
    Looking forward to more of your regional specialities.
    Thanks for this.

    Dear Jaishree,

    I am back again with many doubts.

    1) When you say coarse flour, what is it exactly? Wheat flour of Bombay sooji texture?

    2) Guess what I found today. A bhatti stove/oven!! Is it good to invest in one? Or will regular electric oven do?

    Am planning on trying bhatti tomorrow.Will definitely post a FB.

    Thanks again for opening this form of cuisine to us.

    affly
