  • If you are not getting double cream you may also use whipping cream. If you want to make it with Amul fresh cream then before adding lemon zest and lemon juice bring the cream to 3/4 of its quantity by stirring it continuously on heat. Then follow the above process as depicted.

  • Do not worry about adding lemon juice to cream and sugar mixture. It will arrive to its consistency, just add little by little and keep stirring.
