fatima - it is strange to ask how to make poppy seed paste here , but then u must be really desperate! it is very easy , i always make it . soak poppy seed say 3-4 heaped tablespoon and soak it in warm water, not hot water, for 2-3 hrs , then grind it in mixie, initially it wont happen leave it, do some other work , then from time to time give it some more grinding ,suddenly u wud find it done ! it takes almost 10 wirls approx. dont worry if it takes more time, but trust me it wud be done. :lol:

Roasting the bread is not done in hyderabadi double ka meeta, it is deep fried in ghee/oil instead.
