  1. This looks really interesting. But never assume too much ... I admit my ignorance, I have no idea what a thali is. What is it?

  3. When I make Khichu it gets very lumpy. Sevral little uncoocked flour pockets gets formed as soon as I add the flour to the water. Is there a trick how the flour is dumped in the water? Or how to mix the water and flour? Mine comes out really lumpy everytime :(
