  1. Thank Ketty. It was confusing to have the “tbs” measures in this Malido recipe. I have removed them. Usually when I make Malido, I go by eyesight and taste adding ingredients approx.

    Another thing if anyone is making Malido for a prayer ceremony like Jashan, pls do not add any water or rosewater. Only milk.

  2. You have mentioned 16 tbs for 8 1/2 cups flour, 1 cup milk , pistachios and almonds each and 1/2 cup in your recipe for sultanas.
    So how can 16 tbs be for 1cup 1/2 cup and 81/2 cups.?
