  5. What to do if I don't get cream here... What is to replace cream?

  6. @Sharanya SkarpYou can use milk mixed with some cornflour

  7. I made this was really good..I wanted to ask you, my koftas broke during frying...what may be the reason..can I omit the baking soda next time?

  8. @NimsThe mix may be too wet...Just add little more cornflour

  9. One more doubt cauliflower will have insects know, so I soak it in hot water for 10 mins b4 using. Now you have told to shread raw flower as it is. Then what to do for insects?
