Tips & Tricks

Make sure you don’t bring the mixture to a strong boil as this can ruin the flavors. Instead, bring it to a slow simmer.

Don’t use ghee or clarified butter in this recipe. Much of the flavor comes from butter, which is very different from the flavor of ghee.

Feel free to customize the spices to your liking. Some people like adding allspice, while others prefer vanilla.
