    Firstly, I compliment you on your visual treats. I've tried a couple of your recipes and must say they were really good. Today, I made mambazha pulissery. Yummo. It was too good and we sat down to a simple yet hearty lunch. Must add, I can't stop pinning away your recipes. They're as good as they appear in the pictures. Good work.

    I got a black manchatti jus like u have, cured it with rice kanji but when I tried to boil water or do seasoning with oil I see that the water or oil jus seeps through the bottom when in contact with heat

    Is this normal

      HI priya..
      Sorry for the delay…okie..
      even if you cure the manchatti it will absorb some oil / water during the first few uses…
      but if water/oil drips through the bottom , then you should check if there are any fine cracks on the inner or outer surface of the manchatti
