  1. It looks as if the recipe is incomplete/ has typo

    In the ingredients there are “2 Tablespoons, 1 teaspoon and 1/2 teaspoon”
    in the step by step instructions, there is a step “Add , and to the vegetables and mix well.”

    It is very confusing. Please do something to clear the confusion,

    • Hey Sandeep, so sorry for the inconvenience. We had a small issue with some of the links disappearing from our website, hence the typos. The issue should be fixed now. Thanks for brining it to our notice! 🙂
