  2. For the sweet thuja can we use wheat flour and maida in the proportion 1:1.

  3. Yes Vijaya, we can very well use. Also we can use only wheat flour and skip maida also but the taste would be little less than maida one.

    1. sometimes if there is moisture in the cut diamonds then the dough will melt. Thats the reason we are drying it out in a paper towel before frying
