What is grated orange rind? Where did you buy from?
1 no. egg = 1egg white+1 egg yolk?
Bicarbonate of Soda = baking soda?
Thanks!

Hi anonymous,

Grated orange - take a fresh orange and get a zester or grater to grate it and then chop it up.

1 no. egg is 1 whole egg (white + yolk)

Bicarbonate of Soda is baking soda.

can we use frozen ghee instead of butter aunty?

Hi tricia,

It's butter to use margarine rather than using ghee. Ghee will make the dough too soft to handle.
