And again Main Ingredient says 'Alcohol'!!. The recipe is good but 1 cup ghee and 1-1/2 cup sugar makes its extremely fattening. Is there a low-fat version to this?

Dairy is the main ingredient and English should say it is an Indian Sweet not a repetition of the Indian name. Just reading this yummy recipe put pounds on. Shanti/Mary-Anne

Snigdh....sorry but you are totally wrong here. Who said you have to eat tons of it. You can limit your portion and enjoy the taste. But, I think that is something you probably do not know how to do.!!
