    This is a quick and delicious recipe. We have tried it and it turns out great. We also tried a different variation to it by using fresh corn kernels and gram flour instead of only makkai ka atta. The corn kernels are grounded in a mixie and mixed with gram flour, then rest of the recipe is same. It turns out awesome and a more healthier option.
