Let the Q and A begin!

Since I mentioned last time I enjoyed reading search queries, I thought of following up with some examples from March 2012.  With the hope that you not only get entertained, but you and I also learn something new together.

Let the Q & A begin.

my dosa came out like pancake
Dosa actually is a type of pancake/crepe, but I think you mean yours was small & thick?  Guess you can make Uttapam out of it instead, or the comments here by the experts would be helpful?

what to do when your pan doesn’t make dosas
Throw it away, lol.  Just kidding.  You need a wide flat round skillet for dosa, despite that if your pan doesn’t obey you, then comments here may help.

why my veg manchurian don't get brown colour
Hmm.  Guess you didn’t fry Manchurian balls enough.  Or if you mean for gravy, it gets its color from soya sauce + ketchup (color theory: black + red = brown)…

can we put skimeed milk in rabri
Can, but wouldn’t recommend.  To thicken skimmed milk it might take hours.  Use whole milk instead to make rabri.

Add a little more citric acid, lemon juice, or vinegar after milk it hot, gently stir and wait couple of minutes.  If this doesn’t work then I don’t know what your milk is made of :-/

ginger garlic paste color green is ok
Nope.  Garlic, chopped or paste, turns green after few hours in contact with air or even in refrigerator.  Green is not ok, put more salt and store in freezer.

fenugreek face mask
Leaves or seeds?  In any case, I haven’t tried.  I’ve put sandalwood (chandan), basil (tulsi), chickpea flour (besan), fuller’s earth (multani mitti), fruits, vegetables and all types of face masks.  Haven’t heard of fenugreek.

why milk solid float in butter
If you’re referring to making ghee, foam floats and milk solids sink to the bottom.  If boiling milk, the thick layer of cream (malai) floats on milk.  But I don’t know of milk solid floating in butter (?) – may be something to do with density, like how oil floats over water.
