    • Hi Deepa,

      You can use curd or yogurt instead of eggs, but you wont get cakes same like one with eggs. So i wont recommend it that much. Flax seed powder is considered as a good egg replacer. 1 Tbsp flax seed powder + 2.5 Tbsp water. Mix well. Rest it for 5 mins to thicken. It can be used in place of 1 egg. Hope it works for you.
