When I first made the pakkavada using this recipe, I roasted the gram flour a bit & the pakkavada came out reasonably well. Next time I roasted the flour thoroughly thinking it would make it better & the pakkavada became a big flop. It would have helped if you had included a tip as to how much or to what extent it should be roasted. From my experience, I realise that it would be quite ok to make it without roasting the gram flour at all or if at all you roast it, just roast it gently (whatever the reason behind the roasting is).Sorry, I'm thoroughly disappointed that such a delicious tasting recipe resulted in such a disaster - waste of time, energy and food material - just because a small tip was not included. Please make sure to include small tips about such subtle details which can make or break the whole dish.
