Hi, You should check out some websites for rates in your country. The prices and shipping vary from country to country. Other option is to find some Indian shop in your locality. I hope you will be able to find the ingredients and make it.

Hi Lamiah,
I am not familiar with Nigeria. Do you have any Indian grocery stores nearby. If so, you can get everything there. Otherwise, you can purchase the ingredients online.

use condensed milk instead of evaporated milk....?
Person   ()
Condensed milk is usually thicker and sweet. So if you use it you have to reduce the quantity of butter and sugar accordingly.
