thanks a lot for sharing this came out well...just 1 suggestion: increase the amount of rice powder.


Thanks a lot for sharing this came out excellently. One suggestion: increase the amount of rice powder used.


Should the rice balls be soaked with the curry at the end? I did all the steps but somehow the rice balls were not soaked enough .I felt it was better to keep both separate.


it is not good to my expectation
