  21. 50 grams of sugar means how much in table spoon?

  22. Dear Padhu,
    As per your measurements, 1 cup = 250 ml. So 2.5 cups make 625 ml. Should I use 1/2 litre milk or 625 ml milk for preparing custard. Kindly clarify.

    I always use 250 ml cup for all of your recipes.

    1. Smeerthi - Use half liter of milk. I use standard measuring spoons and cups for all my recipes. For this recipe use 1/2 liter of milk.

  23. I use low fat milk, Can my in laws around 60's have it twice a week? Is it fatty food

  24. I have never added warm milk to make custard paste..always cold milk.please clearify abt the milk. Also the quantity of the milk to make paste seems very it just 3tbsp??

    1. It is done to prevent lumps. We are mixing the custard powder with 3 tbsp milk to prevent lumps, then we are adding it to the rest of the milk.The recipe is very clear, kindly read it fully.
