Hi Lady, your this potato kachori I am sure 5 pieces will do me fine. They look like one bite melts in the mouth kind too. And browned just nice....
Outstanding!

I have always said women who can cook and bake are dangerous.....to bachelors! Ha ha.
When young lots of people warned me about SYTs (sweet young things).....but nobody warned me about girls who can cook and bake!

And thats how I lost my Bachelor's degree, she gained her Masters.
If not for food, I would have made many girls happy instead of one.
Ahhh, but no regrets....I sleep well at nights, ha ha...with a full tummy of course.

Where you learn your this black belt baking skills?
Mother's University or the Swiss Finishing school, ha ha.
You have fun this Rabbit year....try not to cook rabbits this year....might get unexpected baby, ha ha.
Keep a song in your heart, best regards, Lee.
