Morkoo is an Indian favourite and yet people are so shy when they put in on their Diwali plates. I piece for an entire household.

Here again I thought this recipe would be a complicated one. It isn’t. And the morkoo machine if I could find one in a dorp like PE then you can find one anywhere in the world.

The only problem I had was going round and round with the machine. But I think it was just nerves and I kept trying to look at the machine from the bottom while turning from the top.
