How to make Selroti | Nepali Style Bread

  1. Blend together the sugar and ghee till it's fluffy.
  2. Add all the dry ingredients and mix it well.
  3. Add milk slowly and make a smooth batter which is a bit thinner than the cake batter. Keep aside for 2 hours.
  4. Heat oil in a flat bottomed heavy pan/kadhai.
  5. Put the batter in a piping bag with a big nozzle. Pipe the batter in the hot oil making roundels. Cook in a medium flame.
  6. Turn when it turns golden brown in colour. Turn using two chop sticks or a knife.
  7. Serve hot or cold with Nepali alu dum.

My Tip:

You can increase the quantity of sugar if you prefer more sweetness. The breads can be kept for 2-4 days in room temperature but if you want them to give them a longer shelf life then use water instead of milk. Though the milk will give you softer breads.
