Hello Chef Razavi,

I got your ice cream recipe. Recipe describes Sahlab instead of Corn starch. As you mentioned available in Middle-east store, but I got sahlab flavor pudding mix would it work. If not would you please let us know that what brand name sahlab I can buy in Houston- Texas, USA
OR can I substitute cornstarch instead of sahlab. And how much it should be used.

Please reply
