  1. I can surely call you now Fasting recipe master. You have come out with so many delicious fasting recipes, each dish better than the previous one. Some people keep fast to shed some calories. Your space should be banned for them as your delicious dishes will force them to try them all and rather than reducing they will gain some kilos 😀

  2. I saw them when you posted but wanted to leisurely go through your post and so, here I am now. The first thought that came to my mind was that I need to grab some from my monitor. They look so perfectly made. Even people who claim to not liking ragi wouldn’t be able to refuse these burfis with all those rich and yuumy things thrown in.

  3. that burfi looks fab dear!!! love that gorgeous color, looks like a chocolate burfi, i m bookmarking this to try, i have some popped ragi flour and looking for recipes to exhaust it!!! Perfect for gifting and love the idea as post workout snack!
