  1. thin milk has to be added first for cooking rite..i think u have typed it wrong..

    1. Nope...i added thick milk first & cooked for 3 mins...then only the milky taste will combine with the chickens.... after adding thin milk, cook for sometime in medium flame it will turn thick..if not mix cornflour & add...

    2. By adding the thick milk first, wont it get separated??

    3. won't..just cook with thick milk for 3 mins..

  2. This is the first recipe i tried from your blog..and it did boost our taste buds..thanks Sajina for the recipe!!
