INFO & TIPS
Notes by Foodeva Marsay
~ At the braising stage, sultanas and more almond flakes may be added, amounts to your preference.
~ For a more traditional Sojee, use 1 and 1/2 cups of milk, beat in 1 Egg with a few drops of Egg Yellow Colouring;).
~Sugar qauntity may also be adjusted, with 1/2 cup being the top level measurement for this amount.
That’s Basically it…ENJOY!!!
