  1. Hi Kamala,

    Thanks! Your receipes are innovative. 🙂

    Can we skip milk in this receipe and use only water?


  2. Hi kamala I like all your recipe…can you do some sweet recipe with sugar free…so that I can let my hubby eat guilt free as he is diabetic.
    I tried your recipes with sugar free some times I add more sugar free…in case of string consistency how does it work in sugar free…
