  • Flip it to the other after a sec and allow it to roast well to a light golden colour.
  • Now remove the tawa from fire and put the phulka directly on fire with the uncooked side facing the flames with the help of tongs.

I began this blog to compile my recipes in one place. I started writing this keeping in mind beginners and busy people and hence have tried to keep the steps and procedure as simple as possible. The recipes that you find here are vegetarian, which I cook on a day to day basis and are quite simple. I dedicate this space to all the people whom I came across,who inspired me to cook, who shared their recipes and tips and helped me improve my culinary skills.
