  15. Hi,

    I am new to this cooking blogs, recently started viewing your postings...have a doubts (i).his plain flour or the All purpose flour is ''Maida''?
    (ii) I searched for vegetable oils here in supermarkets, but not got. Can we use Canola oil or the normal Sunflower oil instead of Veg oil?

    wanted to comment, nice receipes, keep going, waiting for more from you

  16. hi ann
    thank u so much for ur comments. you can use butter/margerine instead veg oil also can use sunflower oil..plainflour/maida both are same...keep sending comments n thanks a lot for comments


  17. Thank you Jaisy for the reply. I saw the chocolate cake made in presuure cooker. Wonderful idea...Can this technique used for other low degree (oven-made) receipies for cakes? Will down-part get burned if we directly keep the cake tin inside the cooker? Will the cakes be soft too?

    I tried the fruit salad with custad sauce, it was really nice, had full stomach..Couldnt click the pics to send to you.
