US Measuring Cups Are Used For All Recipes (1 cup = 240ml)
If you are beginner in cooking, I would recommend measuring all the ingredients and preparing them before you start making the recipes. Once you get used to the process and method of cooking and you get some knowledge, you can go by andaaz method (eyeballing the ingredients). But still for baking recipes, desserts or to get the perfect restaurant style taste, I highly advise to measure the ingredients properly.
For measuring ingredients, I always use the US measuring cups and spoons. below is the commonly used cups and spoon measuring chart which becomes handy, if you are making double the recipe or cutting it into half or so on.

How much does 1 teaspoon of Curd POWDER weighs in GMs
It’s a powder of yogurt not whole yogurt.
I don't know. Never worked with curd powder.
Sugar Cane: Malayalam: Karimbu or better: Chakkara Karimbu. Not Karimbin Neeru. Karimbin Neeru means Sugar Cane juice.
Chakkara-Jaggery. (Sugar: Panchasaara/Panjasaara)
The usage Chakkara Karimbu is better because there is another plant in Kerala (in Malayalam) referred as Karimbu-a wild variety, which is not edible-this also referred as Naaya Karimbu in Malayalam (Dog Cane) to avoid confusion with Sugar Cane!
Thank you so much for correcting and giving right info,
