I like to eat sheermal in every wedding and dawat due to its taste and softness. I think it is hard to make it in home because lot of efforts require and you will not get the result as available in the restaurant. .

sheermal is softened by adding milk in the recipe. The soft the sheermal the tastier it will be. I love sheermals and taftan and til kulcha also. I have never eaten this homemade so am happy to find the recipe . showing it to my daughter if she could make it.

How to make sheermal soft but bonded strongly so it does not break when picked from one side like we normally pick a roti. Usually sheermal breaks and it reduces the effect of presenting it. Is there any tip ? Chef Asad? Chef Shireen?
