Here's the link to the Google advanced search: https://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&a...pe=&as_rights=

And you could ask her questions.
Thanks Taxlady, and everyone else who has offered suggestions. I will definitely check that out and will certainly have to remember Radhuni for future questions. :)

It just seems like they soak up a whole lot of oil and feel very "heavy".

The recipes I've checked seem to call for ghee in the pastry. I've emailed a friend who is married to a guy from India. If she doesn't have a TNT recipe, I bet her MIL does.
