    1. Thanks Erum, am fine πŸ™‚ add half flour and then add butter milk then again add flour and mix buttermilk.In two steps you have to add buttermilk. Baking soda we will add in vinegar in the end and after mixing add in batter. Its baking soda not powder which we will add in vinegar.

    1. Anum that food color will not give you perfect red color ,dear you are in karachi you can easily get it from empress market.In powder form. Or go to memon foundation-Azizabad you will get all colors i mean gel or liquid or powder with perfect quality from there.
