Dilkhush is a sweet bun filled with delicious and colourful coconut and tutti-frutti stuffing. This sweetmeat is available in most of the bakeries in south India.

Chef Tejasvi adds candied cherries and loads of dry fruits to coconut and tutti-frutti stuffing. She then stuffs this filling in the dough and then bakes it.

This Dilkhush is mildly sweet, soft and spongy. Rise and shine with Dilkhush and a cuppa of chai.
