Hi, BlueGull. This recipe is intended as a substitute for store-bought baking mixes such as Bisquick. Hope this helps! --Editors of RecipeLion

What is vegetable shortening ? Is it white margarine or yellow baking margarine or completely something else ? I'm in South Africa & the only shortening I know of is from animals . Thanks Hanko

I would go to an Asian food market, if you can find one, and ask there - many Indians are vegetarian or part-time vegetarians, and I am sure they will have vegetable-based shortening or oils. The animal-based shortenings aren't good for this mix because you would have to refrigerate it to keep it from going rancid.

Vegetable shortening is a solid fat made from hydrogenated vegetable oil. We use products such as Crisco in the U.S.
