Notes

You can replace both the sugars with coconut sugar or jaggery, incase you avoid castor sugar.
You can you all the either of Flour or in any other proportion too. Almond flour can also be substituted in place of APF if you want to make it nutritious.
Chia seed gel can be replaced with flax gel.
Pls Note. I have used Ashirwaad Atta that is available in Indian Grocery stores. Add more liquid if the WWF you are using has lot of fiber in it.
