    Hi Mearl thanks a ton just a question it is mentioned 1 – 8 grind together to a paste but if you go thru the recipe the only grinding ingredients are kashmiri chillies, coconut, cardamon, cinnamon so only these ingredients are to be ground i suppose. Can you please clarify.

    God bless you

    Tried this out. It was awesome .Everyone liked it .They think I am a genius. lets leave it that way. Left out a couple of ingredients like cardamon , instead of Kashmiri chillies used regular chilli powder so Im sure it wasnt as delicious as it was supposed to be but it was still awesome. Thanks.
