Recipe Notes
  • Straining of puree is important to avoid any unwanted piece.
  • Do not boil too much after adding milk, just a boil is enough.
  • Though zucchini is not available in India easily either you may substitute this with green pumpkin or just omit it. The waste will be as good as it is supposed to be.
  • You may adjust the quantity of garlic, 3-4 cloves are enough for very mild taste.
  • You may also add a small pc of ginger while boiling.
  • Vegans can substitute butter with shortening and cow's milk with almond, soya or coconut milk.
