Carefully place a stand in the centre of the kadai ,as the kadai will be hot.

****** No need to add water or anything .the kadai has to be empty.

Place the tin on the stand inside the kadai without touching the kadai.[ **** the tin should not touch any sides of the kadai ,there should be a gap betwween the kadai and tin on all sides ]

The stand acts as a separator betwween the kadai and the tin .

Cover it with a lid and bake for 35 – 40 mins till it is done / toothpick comes clean .
