  1. Hi Anuja and Hetal,

    can you please give me the approximately amount of Jaggery, Nuts and Ghee that is used in this Video? Just for approximate value.
    Please answer me.

  2. hey.. there.. i follow all ur veg. recipes…but u know wat… if u add cardamom to this fun combo… it’s gonna create magic… trust me on dat….

  3. Hi, Your recipes are fantastic, I was wondering if you can possibly create a video on the recipe for ‘gachak’ I ate some whilst I was in india last year and it was delicous. I believe it is very similar to peanut brittle, but in India is tastes different, I think they use jaggery and spices like cardamom or something else to give it a unique taste. Anyway I would be very grateful if your could make a simple to follow videos like you usually do but for gachak. Thanks!

    Keep up the good work!

    1. Hi Arun,

      I haven’t heard it being called “gachak” but what you are describing sounds like what we call “til sankari”. It is made from jaggery, sesame seeds and the shape is similar to peanut brittle. If this is what you are referring to, we’ll put it on our list to do. Thanks.

      1. Hi Hetal,

        Thanks for your response, after doing a bit of research it is called chikki apparantly. However after asking my parents, they told me its called ”gachak”. so I think they may be a bit of difference to what the name is depending on which part of India you are from. However the one I tasted had peanuts and not sesame seeds. Thanks

  4. Hi,
    When i try to view ur vedios i cannot hear your voice.
    Plz tel me alternative solution.My head phone working properly.

    WAITING FOR a feedback


    1. Hi Geetha,
      Can you check one more time, we have tweaked the video a little…hopefully it’s better. If it’s now, you’ll have to try something at your end 🙁

  5. Hi Hetal and Anuja,
    ur receipies r so gud.I saw ur jaggery peanuts sweet, nice. I have a south indian version of peanuts laddu.very simple,
    for 1 full cup of roasted peanuts take half cup of powdered jaggery ,powder peanuts roughly in a mixer and add powdered jaggery it ,blend it once n remove it from the mixer and make small balls.

  6. Hi Hetal&Anuja,

    I have one question about your Shrimp Biryani, do I needs to be cooked it in Preassure Cooker or can i use some other pan?
    If it does need to be cooked in preassure cooker, I’ll buy it. I want Biryani to be good and rice to be cooked. 🙂

    Please answeer me, I’m sorry posting this on other recipe.. Lol


  7. Could you please show how to make peanut chikki? Thanks.

    Now that you are showing full pubjabi meal, how about covering full festival meals other states too?

    1. Hi R,
      Absolutely, we intend to do that one by one 🙂 Unfortunately we can’t clump them together as we need to keep everyone in mind. We also try to have a variation of different recipes, like a few sweets, curries, subzis, fusion, non-veg etc.
      But thanks for the feedback 🙂

  8. Ami,
    please post ur recipe of bean veggie burger…i don’t know when hetal and anuja will post….i will try ur recipe on my own…can’t wait…summer will fly sooo please post it here

    1. We are still working on the Black Bean Burger recipe. We will NOT put out the video until we are 100% satisfied with it. If you provide your email address, we’d be happy to forward you Ami’s email and you can ask her directly for her recipe. In the mean time, there are hundreds of recipes available on line if you’d like to try them out. Also, we kindly request you to stop spamming our website with so many “cut and paste” comments. We see each one of our comments and it is enough to write it only once.

  9. hi anuja and hetal.

    well well it does look delicious….
    i am in london and we do get powderd jaggery, in the south indian shops, and it comes from kerala, its very handy as well, as i use that in my tea instead of sugar.
    all the best.
    nisha patel

  10. Hi Gals,
    This sounds like gur ki Ghajjak. I am sure Anuja you must know about ghajjak. Favorite sweet during winter. Love this.

  11. Reminds me of the Ghee Gol nu bhungadu from childhood days 😉
    Great source of iron, fat and protein for growing kids!

  12. hii Hetal and Anuja…hw did u crush the jaggery…
    the jaggery chunks are so hard here that is next to impossible to crush it so fine

    1. use punjabi shakkar available in indian grocery stores! this recipe is traditionally made with shakkar and its ok to skip peanuts.just sugar and ghee go well together!
