About Dilkhush (Sweet Coconut Stuffed Bread) Recipe

Dilkhush is a sweet coconut stuffed bread made in small bakeries back in my native place. I still remember my first bite of dilkhush. It has very mild flavors and the bread just melts in mouth. Back in my native my dad’s friend who owns a bakery makes the most best dilkhush and whenever i visit there we get a lot of bakery stuff and even if I forget uncle reminds that “you didn’t get dilkhush, shall i pack it for you?”
