@Neolina We deeply apologize for the error. Thank you for your feedback, please note that the same has been rectified.

dear sir/madam, you have mentioned 3/4 cup salt instead of saying 3/4 cup sugar. Think of how the dish would have tasted. So pl. be careful as a beginner who is learning to cook, would not have any idea of the amount of the ingredient used.
