    I've been trying to make a perfect butchi but failed. I remember, I made one with almost perfect finished product. I want to make another trial and hopefully a success.


    I also love buchi. We used to get this from Chowking and Kungfu Kitchen whenever we dine there but I haven't tried making one from home. This recipe sounds easy and maybe worth trying.
