  1. Hello, can I get a little more details, We are a group of students in China and we miss the traditional food of our country, and those from other countries who have tried sohan halwa are always demanding us to get it from our country so I planned to cook it here. As you know many things are difficult to get in China so please if someone can guide me in detail about how I can cook it perfectly and I have to use an electric pan so I can not control the heat to less or more so kindly guide about it as well. Awaiting your response

  5. Khushrow Mistry, plain is all purpose flour and maida. Cream or tartar/tartari is tartaric acid. Its a acid salt used in cooking. Point 7 is cleared for you now.
