Ingredients to make Eggless Dilkush

  • For the Bread:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour/ Maida
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp melted butter (use unsalted butter)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • For the filling:
  • 1/2 cup freshly scraped/ ground coconut
  • 1/2 cup candied peel
  • 1/3 cup cashews
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp strawberry or raspberry jam

How to make Eggless Dilkush

  1. Preparing the filling:
  2. Scrape or coarsely grind the coconut and add it to a bowl /plate. Add the candied peel, cashews, raisins, sugar and jam to it. Mix them well and keep aside.
  3. Warm the milk (just a little more then body temperature like luke warm) and add the sugar and yeast. Mix it well and keep it covered for 10 mins for proofing until it turns foamy.
  4. In a bowl take the flour, salt and mix well. Make a well in the centre and add the melted butter and yeast mixture to it. Combine everything and knead to make a dough. Knead it well for a good 5-7 mins and place it in a greased bowl.
  5. Cover this with a cling film and leave it in a warm place for 2 hrs or until the dough doubles in size.
  6. Now punch and knead again. Weigh the dough and divide into two equal sizes and the third with a little lesser portion.
  7. With the help of a rolling pin and roll them into rounds that are neither too thick or too thin. Make them chapati shape type with one slightly bigger than the others.
  8. Now spread the filling evenly on the disc/ circle. Carefully place the other disc on top of it and cover it completely by pressing the edges firmly.
  9. With the help of a rolling pin, slightly roll on it to make it as even as possible, but be gentle and do not put any pressure.
  10. Now roll out a third circle out of the little dough ball. Cut it into half inch strips, now place the strips and weave alternatively.
  11. Now make small holes with a toothpick for the air/steam to escape while baking. Brush the top with some milk and place it on a baking sheet.
  12. Bake it in a preheated oven at 200°C / 395°F for about 20 mins or until it's golden.
  13. It's yummy and ready to be eaten!

My Tip:

Activating the yeast perfectly is the key for any baking procedure.
