      Mmmmmm! Like Varsha, I also decreased the sugar and butter a bit. I just used butter since I didn't have ghee. I also added some coconut and raisins. This really hit the spot!

      this would be worth 5* if not for the astronomical amount of ghee in the recipe. i reduced it drastically. i reduced the sugar by 1/4cup as well. it was not as rich but still very delicious.
