Top Review by littlemafia

First time making an Indian dessert and it was a winner! DD calls it Indian Soup,it must be the noodles that makes her call it that. I used walnuts and made everything else as stated.I reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup and it was still very sweet for me,but I know how sweet Indian treats tend to be. I thought would be a more intense color to it,but I'm pretty sure they use food coloring in Indian sweet shops.Brought back memories from the shop I use to buy sweets in Vancouver,Main St.Thanks for sharing.
