Hi, they don’t make the gravy flour anymore. Can I use another gravy powder and how much please?

This is a favourite in my family. If I have run out of liquid stock I use tinned tomatoes, might have to add a splash of water. I also double the meat portion and throw in whatever vegies are looking a little sad. It turns out fine.
