Vegan can replace dairy milk with soy milk.
Those who are more calorie conscious,can fry it in oil or shallow fry it and can use cows milk instead of whole milk.
To give twist to this traditional sweet,one can add fresh fruit pulp instead of reduced milk and can add fruit emulsion to the sugar syrup too.
