r1 1 says:

i tried ur recipe but it turned out to be disastrous , i think ruchi bharani is a better chef i wish she is back coz every thing i made seeing her recipe turned out excellent . i dont know when ever i have tried making recipes by so called celebrity chefs like sanjeev kapoor there is something they dont share with the viewers which makes the recipe taste bad . i wish u guys were more clear on everything coz people like me who live in us depend on youtube . and when things turnout bad you loose interest in cooking

muna koya says:
