    Can you please tell me how much is 0.5 cup is.
    I am assuming 1/2cup but seems to me way to much filler for the recipe.

      Hi Penelope,

      0.5 Cup is indeed 1/2 Cup. We prepare and taste all of the recipes on our blog once they are created to ensure they taste great and this one was a hit!

    What is the “Jalgua” ingredient? Also, what kind of oil could you substitute for coconut in this recipe – I have allergies to, and will need to replace it? Thanks
