Super easy n super delicious! Can we use butter instead of ghee and kaju instead of badam?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Wendy, for authentic taste we recommend you to use clarified butter that is Ghee. You can add baadam or pistachios instead of kaju.

Tarla Dalal    Hi, Try using jaggery sugar, which will be in granulated form. There might be slight difference in colour.
