Could you include your source, Spicy? Others including myself would love to have that resource. Thanks! :-) – Kristina Lopez Jan 13 '13 at 19:20
@KristinaLopez What source? Perhaps I speak Hindi - थोडा़ खट्टा मक्खन ;-) – spiceyokooko Jan 13 '13 at 19:32
Well, that's a possibility, of course, but my version of Google does not find the word "makkani". Did you mean "makhani" and if so, does that mean "khatti makhani", or sour butter is the same substance as sour cream? – Kristina Lopez Jan 13 '13 at 19:42
@KristinaLopez Makkani, Makhani can also mean cream. – spiceyokooko Jan 13 '13 at 20:02
Thanks for clarification! – Kristina Lopez Jan 13 '13 at 20:08
