  1. hello, could I used frozen green peas ? instead of corn flour can I replace it by rice flour ? how many tablespoon ? thanks

    1. The original recipe and taste requires dried peas....and not frozen peas. If you use frozen peas the effect will be different and not like ragda pattice. You can use 2 tbsp plain flour instead of corn flour.

  2. Could I get a reply of my request dated Nov 19, please, thnaks
