  11. Hi

    Nice healthy recipe, I have a few doubts though:
    ! What thickness of salt should be added in the cooker? Will a thin layer suffice or should it be more than 1 inch thick?
    !! Wont the salt get burned if left for an hour with so much heat?
    !!! Can the cooker be used as a pressure cooker later on or is it necessary to use an old one?
    !!!! Instead can one use a thick bottomed kadai instead of the cooker?

    Pl reply to queries

    1. Hi shweta

      For salt thickness... make little thick layer so bowl have not touch to direct surface... you can reuse this salt in cooking as well as again for baking.
      For baking.. you can use any cooker old or new one... no harmful effects to cooker.
      Only cooker can provide proper tandoor or oven atmosphere. You can use sand too instead of salt.
