Hi I do not have a kitchen scale to measure all the ingredients that are given in gms. Can you please tell me the equivalent amount in Cups or ml ? One more question, How long should I boil the sugar syrup or I should just add dal mixture right after the sugar is dissolved??? Please specify because I am new to mithai making !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
