Hi Sabina.. thanks for dropping by my space. Please follow these steps. I shall post the step-by-step pictures later.

Hot Water Cleaning :
1) Cut the bag structure like a piece of handkerchief. Leave the hair part. The other section you try to remove the dirt with hand. Then scrub the hair part using arvamannai in back and forth direction.

2)Similarly proceed with the other parts. Regarding the pipe like structure, you cut it into pencil length.

3) Take one side of the hole and keep under the running water of tap. Close the other hole and fill the pipe with water. Now close both the holes with the help of fingers.

4) Shake it for sometime and empty the pipe. Proceed with other pipe like structures.

5) Take a pressure cooker and add all the pieces in it. Add turmeric powder and water sufficient to cover the pieces.

6) Close the lid and cook for 4-5 whistles. The hair and dust particles would be removed. now you can proceed with the cooking.

Since you are new to this recipe, pls try to follow this method for now. If you have any more doubts, you can ask me.
