    Hello Archana, I tried the cake by replacing eggs with 1/2 tin of condensed milk (unsweetened). The cake came out quite well but I had to increase baking time by 10 minutes. Regards, Maimoona

    hi archana this cake can be made without eggs. instead u add condensed milk and reduce the quantity of sugar.


    Hi Archana, I have never tried this recipe without eggs. To make yoghurt (Dahi) at home: Boil 1 cup milk, transfer in a flat bottomed bowl and let cool till it is luke warm. Add 1 tablespoon of yoghurt, mix lightly, cover and leave for about 10 or 12 hours till it is set. You can multiply the quantities if you need more yoghurt.


    hi, can we make this cake without eggs,how do you prepare youhurt at home?
