Dear Maam, Thanks you for this recipe - I had no idea that you were so good at UP recipes too....Nidhi has obviously not learnt this from her mom!

You should consider adding a tracker to your website which will record how many people (and from where) visited this blog. It should be available in the Tools section of the blog making website.

I have had your Pithi kachoris. They are so yummy! Is this a good breakfast dish or would it be too heavy for breakfast? Though it is fried, since it has dal in it, it is a fairly healthy dish. As long as we eat fried food occassionally, it should be ok. But I know this dish is too yummy as I have tasted it myself! Love, Malathi
