Another one inspirational recipe which i got from the mall, i have already posted a inspirational recipe of chicken strip burger. But this is from a shop called Chic King in that mall. When i tasted it first time, it was like amazing. I started thinking about the ingredients and stuffs which were there. I know it had potatoes, but it was so fluffy like a sponge. When i came back home, i thought of imitating the same one with my own recipe and to my surprise t some out so good and fluffy like that. The reason behind the fluffiness is from the flour baking soda and lemon juice. And it was so yummy, we finished the entire plate in 5 mins..So try this out and let me know how it turned for you..
