Dear Rekha ji, thanks for your comment and sharing your recipe of dranna. Yes, you are right when you say that first rice roti is made and then pieces are fried. Well, Tschochavor is also rice roti but small in size. Koishursaal book has given recipe of, how to make first rice roti and then fry the pieces. Adding walnuts and chili powder is matter of personal taste. Anyway, thanks for raising this point, which now I have made clear.

I enjoyed the Drann--without eating the Drann,while viewing this video. Chandra Ji is keeping the typical KP tradition of Koshur Khen Chen alive through these videos. I hope she would put the audio-video about Monga Wo'r, in the next issue of the Shehjar. Chaman lal Raina
