    Hello, when I first came across your site I was super excited that finally I found a place where I can get all the real hyderabadi muslim recipes but when I was going through this mutton khorma recipe I was shocked at the quantities you gave for just 200 gms mutton. for 200 gm you said 1 cup peanuts, 1 cup dry coconut, 1/2 cup charoli and 1/2 cup poppy seeds. this is absolutely wrong, this masala is more even for one kg mutton, I don’t know how you gave these proportions. if that is a mistake please correct it, otherwise people will get a wrong impression about your recipes. I am writing this only with good intentions as I am also a cooking teacher and I know a teacher cant give wrong proportions.
