    Love Spinach and I would love to try this.
    I wondered if soy milk, or almond or an alternative could be used instead of Cow’s milk?
    Cow’s ghee, is there an alternative for this?
    It would be good to know if the recipe has been tried with alternative to cow products.
    Thank you.

      You could use Buffalo milk as far as soy or almond milk is concerned I haven’t tried but there might be a difference in thickness of gravy though try coconut milk
