My Notes:

  • The measures are just given roughly, it can be modified according to your preference.There is no perfect measures for this recipe, so feel free to plus or minus the quantity.
  • I added chopped nuts just for the crunch, you can skip that too.
  • I couldn't wait for for 2 hrs so just set for 1/2 hr and cut it so it was not that firm.
  • You can even add 1/4 sweetened khoya for extra richness.
  • Adding poppy seeds is optional but I recommend adding it for nice crunchness.
