Mom and a cooking enthusiast said...

Hello - I am a new visitor to your site and your recipes are awesome.I have a question thou, In the Jamun recipe did you use reduced fat milk powder coz i only see 2% reduced fat milk powder in stores.Thanks for taking the time to share good recipes :)

Saras said...

Hi Mom and a cooking enthusiast,

I used Carnation brand on fat free milk powder and also Amul instant full cream milk powder and it works well with both and hope the same with reduced milk powder too.. Let me know your feedback if you do try it out!

Mom and cooking enthusiast said...
