  1. Wow..aarthi thanks for sharing microwave recipe. ..they r so helpful..keep going

    Btw I just saw ur puthugam tv show in YouTube...yesterday

    Great work in tat arthi..I appreciate ur dedication towards cooking..and ur efforts to blog for us....

  2. Hi ! Tried making them, but there was a strong smell of besan , can u tell me what I did wrong

  3. Hi aarthi. Which mode and what temperature should I put in the microwave

  4. @AnonymousEach oven varies..You have to cook it till the raw smell leaves..May be you should have microwaved it for 1 more min to get rid of the raw smell

  5. @AnonymousThis has to be done in normal cooking mode and high power

  6. Hey Aarthi, yummy receipe. tried it just now and cannot stop eating it.

  7. Brilliant and such a easy recipe. Thanks for sharing :)

  8. Tried it out today and it was simply superb

  9. Your microwave recipes really rocks...and i find it so helpful...

  10. Tried ur receipe today. It came out well. Thank u

  11. Can we use icing sugar instead of powdered one

  12. Hi.. This looks really lovely!
    I don't have ghee, so is there anyway to subsitute ghee with something else?

    Please continue to do what you are doing!

  13. Hi Aarthi.. Tried this recipe today but once i added the besan it went dry.. It didn't look the way u showed it in the pictorial..also wen i microwaved it for 2 mins it burnt.. Wht do i do in this case.. Do i add more ghee n microwave it for maybe 1-1.5 min

    1. yes add more ghee and microwave it for less minute. each microwave will vary.

  14. Thank you for this receipe, but for me the besan and ghee mix were little watery maybe I have added extra ghee...donno...even sugar proportion was too sweet though I have added little less...but surely thanks this is the first time I have tried yours..keep up the good work
