I feel so blessed to share this recipe IMG-20170625-WA0012

This is something my  umma makes during special occasions . i used to snatch the paalada and run  , Never valued how difficult it was until i started making it .

let me say first when u make it will not be perfect ,if it becomes perfect its good. I still remember the day i first made this, it was sticking in the bottom  and not coming our properly ….. it was definitely a big  tragedy  , then slowly i understood the technique and now it is good but not perfect, i can say u cannot compare this with my umma’s paalada, there is lot of difference 🙂  I have once shared in instagram a small clipping of umma making paalada
