  7. Swpna your family is so lucky to have an amazing creative chef like you in the house :-). Do you use Amul cream for your recipie? I cant seem to find whipping cream anywhere..

    1. Hi Sangeeta,
      Thanks for the lovely compliment :)...
      Yes you can use Amul cream and I think that's the only cream available in India locally... I used whipping cream as it is easily available here but wouldn't make much difference for the filling if you use Amul :)....
