  • I have used evaporated milk instead of fresh milk. End result was too good.

  • I have used ghee instead of butter, reduce quantity of ghee to 100 gms. But go for butter first 🙂

    1. evaporated milk is different, if you ca get it then go for it. Otherwise boil normal milk and boil it till it becomes yellow in color and thick in consistency.
