Few days ago, Saransh Goila taught us how to make caramel Frappuccino with the right balance of coffee and sugar.

Prior to this, Saransh had us drooling with colourful phulkas. Yes, you read that right! He once uploaded a video on Instagram where he added a colourful twist to our regular phulkas. He told his followers to first boil spinach and beetroot and puree them separately. He then kneaded two separate doughs and added the spinach and beetroot puree to each. Then he rolled out the phulkas and cooked them on the tawa! To see how he made these colourful phulkas, click here.
