    Maria do we need to beat the pastry/roll dough for a long time just as it is done for bread or puffs? Does it need to be a soft dough like the one we make for chappatis? Please write back to me, because I love baking & would definately want to try this one. I’m waiting for a speedy reple from your side.Thanks in advance.By the way the photographs of the dishes u make look very very good & appetizing!!

    Hi Sarika

    Thanks a lot for visiting my blog and for your sweet words :).

    I think you dont have to beat the dough for a long time, but make sure that it doesnt have any lumps. Yes it has to be a soft dough. Please let me know your comments after trying this.

      Thanks a lot for your kind words :)

      I’ve posted a fish roll recipe sometime back. Please check it here:

      I think its almost similar to the rolls that you get in Kerala bakeries. You can substitute fish with chicken or beef.

      Take care

    Hi Maria…how are you? i have been on vacation for a while now n’ hence my absence…hope all is well at ur end….i had a small query….i want to mince meat at home rather than buy it ready n’ i don’t have a traditional meat mincer…can i mince meat in the mixer grinder?? hv you ever tried this? pls help…

    • Maria

      Hi Miriam,

      am fine dear. Hope you had a great vacation.

      I usually cook the meat first and then mince it. I haven’t minced the raw meat yet.

      You can mince the cooked meat in a mixie or food processor.

      Hope this helps…

  • Kathleen

    How much warm water do I need?

    • Maria Jose

      Hi Kathleen, just enough water to make it a soft dough, around 1/4 – 1/2 cup.

  • Sophie Simon

    can we substitute refined oil for butter to make it more healthy? will it affect the texture?
