      1. My mother's favorite food when she observes fast!

      2. Hey Priya, like the idea of Farali patties. Never have got a chance to have them though they look amazing and good for fasting time.

      3. These sound good to me and not too difficult. The main problem here would be arrow root! I bought it in the UK but I have not seen it here, called Marante in French. Diane

      4. This is something new to me. Looks delicious. Can't wait to give this a try!

      5. Looks delicous and use of amaranth flour and arrowroot powder seems a healthy and innovative option

      6. Wow! these farali patties look so nice, crisp and delicious, Priya. Fasting or no fasting, they are perfect for any day.

      7. I love these a lot…taste so good with sweet curd,looks awesome
