SUSROOT / KASHMIRI SWEET FLATBREAD


Susroot is a delicacy of Dogra Community from Kashmir. It is a rich sweet flatbread loaded with crushed dry fruits and flavoured with cardamom, fennel seed powders. It is fried in pure Desi ghee.
This bread is specially made as a ritual when the bride goes to her in-law's place. After the bread is fried some coins are inserted in it as a symbol of prosperity. Susroot is sent along with many other goodies in the "Thaal".



Ingredients:
Maida ................... 1 & 1/4 cup
Icing sugar ........... 1/4 cup (add little more if you like it very sweet)
Almonds ............. 2 tbsps (crushed coarsely)
Pistachios ........... 2 tbsps (crushed coarsely)
Raisins ...... 8-10
Dessicated coconut ... 1 tbsp
Fennel seeds ............. 1 tsp (crushed coarsely)
Cardamom powder .. 1/4 tsp
Desi ghee ............ 1 tbsp (to add while kneading)
Salt ............. 1 pinch (to balance the taste - optional)
Desi ghee .......... 1 cup (for frying)
Thin coconut slices cut into semi-circle .. 4 pcs
Coins ........... 8-10 (to decorate)

Method:

Mix all the ingredients together. (except the last 3 ingredients)









Knead the dough adding water as needed.









Roll it out into a thick roti. Garnish it with the coconut slices as shown in the picture. (Fix the edges well into the roti so that they don't fall off.









Heat the ghee in a flat bottomed pan.








Fry the Susroot on a low flame adjusting the heat to medium in between.








Spoon the hot ghee from the pan on the roti while frying as we have to fry only one side.








Towards the end heat some ghee separately in a small pan to a smoking point and pour over the roti while frying it so that the top portion also gets cooked. It should not be too crisp on to as we have to insert the coins.







Remove it on a plate and insert the coins all around  You can sprinkle a little cardamom powder on it for extra flavour.
