Secondly the spices and salt should be added a little extra in the filling,the dough is a little bland and the extra spices would balance out the blandness and you would get better result, remember these tips while preparing the filling,

    Hey, honestly your site is coming along :-), but I had a question – it’s a bit slow. Have you thought about using a different host like propel? It’d help your visitors stick around longer = more profit long term anyway. There’s a decent review on it by this guy who uses gtmetrix to test different hosting providers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6s0ciJI4W4 and the whole video has a bunch of gold in it, worth checking out.
