My baby is milk protein intolerant. How can I replace milk in this recipe?
You can replace milk with other milk types: cocount milk, almond milk etc. Make sure your baby is not allergic to any before you add
Hi I tried the recipe but while heating the milk yolk sugar....it's seemed like milk got burst....I mean doodh fat Gaya ho shayad .......let me know what is to b done as I then too added nuts nd oats too....
Milk and yolk mixture should be heated only for few minutes or until it's slightly thick. If you heat it for a long time, then it might get burnt. Also you should do everything in low flame. Hope it helps.
