Quoting aini:
Actually I'm going to make Italian dough, so can I use cornstarch instead of the arrowroot powder? ?

Aini, we did some research, seems like you can replace arrowroot powder with Tapioca powder (Sagudana, Sabudana) if you are using it in the dough. which is available in Pakistan for kheer making. Please let us know how it turns out!

[quote name="aini"]Kiya koi bata sakta hai arrowroot powder kiya hota hai? ?? Kis cheez ka bana hota hai? ??

Hi Aini,
I don't think it is available in Pak. We are reasonable sure that you can use Corn Starch as a replacement.
What do you plan on using it for?

Quoting aini:
Kiya koi bata sakta hai arrowroot powder kiya hota hai? ?? Kis cheez ka bana hota hai? ??

Hi Aina,
Arrowroot is a starch obtained from the rhizomes of several tropical plants similar to ginger/adrak.
This is often used as a thickner for sauces, just like we use corn-starch. Hope this helps

They are simply just like normal ab exercises, except the
main concentration is about the oblique muscles, often known as adore handles.

The color photos, plus a straightforward explanation, get this
to whole program look achievable. There quite a bit of common myths about getting 6-pack abs like you must wake early in the morning and run using a clear chair stomach to lose fat around your belly faster.
