  4. Thank you for putting this south Indian recipes. For long have I been looking for these. It is mostly English people putting Indian recipes or Muslims.

    I do have a "murku/sev maker/machine/grinder", with a few disks. Could I use this one with the slits to make the ribbon pakodas. Could I use this same machine to make ganthias?
