    Recipe is not accurate. Urad dal and chana dal are not mentioned in the ingredient list. You also mention “Quicklt add the rosted rava”. Yet there is no mention of roastig the rava. Very haphazardly written.
    So, to sum up, you need to mention “Roast the rava, roast the urad and chana dal, and you need to state quantities of urad and chana dal in your list of ingredients.
