Hi Archy-I tried your poha recipe and it was a great; thank you! A couple of questions: Should I cook the urad dal first? And is there a substitute I can use instead of putari (I don't have any of that)? Thank you,
Erin

So far here is the one [url=http://acaiberries.zoomblog.com/]article[/url] I have been able to come across that seemed realistic for what my goals are. Thoughts?
