The purpose of Approving recipes is to avoid Plagiarism and to make sure that inappropriate contents/images are not added/uploaded to the App.
It will take about 24 working hours to approve a recipe, so after uploading your recipes is sent out to the curator and they check the basic contents of the recipe and approves it. Usually it never takes more than 8 hours, maximum time span is 24 hours and do connect us only after that time frame. And the curation won’t happen during holidays. So if you’ve uploaded the recipe on a holiday please hold for next working day and see if your recipe is approved.
