Thanks for this nice and simple recipe. i learnt the hard way that folding in the stiff egg white mixture is an art that you have to master. Maybe some tips and tricks from the master chef would help a lot!

The important aspect that needs to be kept in mind while folding in the egg whites is that we should not loos air (as the egg whites when mixed has air induced into it) and it is best to mix in the egg whites or the maringue in one batch
