NOTES –

  • I used two eggs in this recipe. I’m not sure how the texture will be without eggs.
  • I used a light oil instead of butter.
  • I used about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of lemon zest
  • I used 1 tea spoon of lemon essence – you can skip this if you don’t have it
  • I used a pinch of turmeric to give that yellow hue.
