  2. Hi Aunty,

  5. Hello, I’m in the UK, we have double cream, single cream and whipping cream, Which should I use? Thanks to anyone who answers!

    1. I also live in U.K. & I’ve been cooking American food for ages. When the recipe calls for Heavy Milk (or Cream) here in U.K. it means Double cream.

  6. Hello manjula,
    Your recipes are great, the til ki burfi came out good and i tried it 1 cup of fresh grated coconut instead of sesame and it was just as delicious. Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you in person someday.

    1. I am allergic to dairy too. There are tabletts which you can take if you eat dairy products. I don’t know the english name but you can ask in a drug store for them. You can get them very easily there.

  7. Hello Aunty,

    Your recipes are amazing….i tried this burfi today n believe me we finished the whole lot the same day….Thanks a million……

    i have a question though….can we replace til in this recipe with some other ingredient like almond flakes etc….i know it wont be called til ki burfi then…but i was just wondering since i have a lot of almond flakes sitting in my fridge n am getting tempted to try this recipe with them…what is your suggestion….pls reply…

    God bless You!
