    These look great! They sound incredibly tasty, and are easy to make. What more could one want? Well, I’d like to taste one right this instant, but I guess I’ll have to make my own before that will happen!

      Yes, unfortunately all I can offer you is the recipe. No tasting, no nothing. But seriously these vanish from the tea table like a ghost, who eats ’em, no body knows 😀

    What is the name of All-purpose flour in urdu, is it nromal chakki atta or maida or besan?

    • |eemz says:

      All-purpose flour is Maida.
      Whole-wheat flour is Aata.
      Chickpea flour is Besan. Hope your confusion will be over now. :)

    Recently I have been trying out your recipes a lot. Tried this one and the creamy egg one. Maybe they are super easy for me to make along with work and specially during Ramadhan. But the best thing about them is that they are crowd pleasers with minimal effort.

    Tried these potato puffs for iftaar just yesterday and everybody loved em and they couldn’t figure out what they actually were 😀
    The best thing about them is that they take very less time to get fried.

    Well recently Iv been coming a lot to your blog for iftaar ideas and it doesn’t dissapoint me :)
    Keep it up!
