  1. Hello Shamsa! Do you think it would be okay if I made these with split pea flour instead of gram flour? Can’t find it easily in the Caribbean 🙁 I figure split pea is as close as I’m going to get.

    1. Hi Victoria! So sorry for taking forever to reply, just checked the comments lol. Split pea flour should be fine, it looks similar to gram flour. You can also use plain flour (or all-purpose flour). Have fun 🙂
