Hi Madhura, I have tried your shankarpali recipe and it turned out simply perfect as I wanted. I have tried making shankarpali many times but it was always a disappointment. But your proportion of ingredients and the whole recipe in general is too good. Thank you so much. I also like the way you explain a recipe, you do not use any fake accent, just speak normal English and use simple words. This makes the listener very comfortable. Thank you n keep it up.
