    This is a reply to Suchi Singh. In this recipe, sweet condensed milk is used so sugar is not required.

    I was trying this recipe. It seems delicious but I don't know if I'm supposed to put sugar or salt in it since it says its a sweet dish but the recipe itself says to add salt. Please clear it out. Thanks!!
