  1. As Salaam Alaikum
    Ramadhan mubarak.

    Wanted to ask how much salt, pepper and red chilli powder do I add?
    Roughly how much should I put in? a tea spoon? half a tea spoon?

    I know some may add more or less but according to you how much do you add in so I get an estimate and once I have made it after I can adjust to my liking.

    1. I would add 1/2 teaspoon red chilli, 1/4 tsp pepper and 1 teaspoon salt. Hope you like the nests!
