Step 1 starts with heating ghee or butter then in step 2 we are supposed to heat remaining ghee or butter; however, the ingredients list does not have any quantity of ghee or butter. Could you please add that measurement? Without that, I will have to start without ghee then use the remaining ghee in step 2 :-) Thanks Your form forces me to add a url (which I don't have), so I am adding one from my dream :-)
