Sweet Sheermal/ Morobba Ruti/fruit bun

For a long while , I was craving for morobba ruti so badly . The memories of Shab-e-Barat ( a holy night , celebrated by the Muslim) are so immensely connected with this special type of bread . Wanted to experiment a bit and alhamdulillah , came out just perfect . Soft and flavorful . I added some extra steps to make it more delightful , like glazing the bread with rose flavored sugar syrup . Trust me , this step made it more flavorful . 🙂


For the dough:

All Purpose flour 2 cups + 1/4 th cup
Active dry instant Yeast 1 and half teaspoon
Milk powder 2 tbl spoon
Sugar 3 level teaspoon
Salt to taste ( around 1 level teaspoon)
1 beaten egg
Oil 4 tbl spoon + 1 tbl spoon butter ( softened)
Luke warm liquid milk ( enough to make a dough)

Other ingredients:

Candied fruits/ morobba and raisins
1 beaten egg for egg wash
Butter ( to rub after taking them out from the oven)

For the Syrup:

Half cup Sugar
Half cup water
Rose essence/ rose water


1. Make a medium thick sugar syrup with half cup sugar and half cup water . Add some rose water in it . Let it cool . The syrup should not be runny or too much thick . It should be medium thick . To prevent crystallization , add few drops of lemon juice while cooking it .

2. Mix all the ingredients for bun and 1 tbl spoon butter except oil . Be careful while adding luke warm milk. If you use too hot water the yeast might get killed , and if you use room temperature or cold water, the yeast won’t wake up !!!!!! In both case the dough will not rise and everything will go in vain . So always use luke warm water in any recipe where you have yeast as an ingredient.

3. Knead well . The dough will be very sticky . Now add the oil and form the dough into a round ball . Now it’s easier to work with the dough. Knead very well . The more you knead, the softer bun you get . Knead at least 8-10 minutes . Put the dough into a closed lid box and place it in a warm place . It may take an hour or more to get the dough double in volume . If it becomes fluffy and double in volume , the dough is ready to make the bun.

4. Punch down all the air form the dough . Now Make two big balls from the dough . Flatten the ball and put some candied fruits and raisins into it. Reshape the ball . Add some morobba/ candied fruits and raisins on the top of the ball too .

5. Cover them with a cling film , plastic wrap or wet cloth for 15-20 minutes more to rise up a little . In the mean time preheat the oven at 400 FH . Brush the buns with egg .

6. Now bake them at 400 FH ( 200 centigrade) in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes . It took me 20 minutes. Plz don’t over bake them, you may end up with hard buns .
After taking out from the oven , rub some butter immediately for the glossier and softer version . Pour the room temperature syrup over this hot bun and rub well . Remember the syrup should be of room temperature and the bun should be very hot .

After taking out from oven and rubbing some melted butter:

The finishing touch ; glazed with rose flavored sugar syrup

Sweet Sheermal/ Morobba Ruti/fruit bun


1 . Please don’t over bake the buns as they get hard if over baked . It took me around 12 minutes to get done .

2. Be careful about the yeast you use and the temperature of water or milk you are pouring to make the dough . Try not to use too old yeasts . While using warm water or milk , it should be mild warm , not piping hot , as they can kill the yeast . If you use cold or room temperature, that also might not wake the yeast up . Always use luke warm water or milk.

3. Try not to put salt directly over yeast as salt can also kill the bacteria .

4. The syrup should be of room temperature when applied and the bun should be very hot . The syrup must be thick but not too thick or too thin .

Garlic-Sesame Naan

Garlic-Sesame Naan

Garlic-Sesame Naan


Flour 2 cups ( 1 cup =250 ml) , heaped
Instant active dry yeast 1 tea spoon ( level spoon)
Sugar 2 tea spoon
salt 1 tea spoon
Powder milk 1 tbl spoon
1 beaten egg
4 tbl spoon oil
1 tbl spoon of yogurt ( optional)
Half a teaspoon , grated or minced garlic
2 pinches of baking soda ( optional)
luke warm milk , enough to make a dough , around 1/3 rd cup ( Don’t put at a time , you may need less or you may need little more)

Other Ingredients:

Chopped garlic (If you r making garlic naan
Any herb of your choice like cilantro , mint
Sesame seeds
Butter to rub the naan


1. . Mix flour with sugar , salt , powder milk , yeast, soda,beaten egg, yogurt and garlic .now add the oil and incorporate with kneading. Knead for a while . Knead very well . Make a smooth dough and rub the dough with little oil. Put it in a closed box and keep it in a warm place for 1 hour or until it doubles up!

2.Punch down all the air from the dough and make small balls from it.

3. Take one ball and try to make shapes with your hand . Don’t use any extra flour . You may dust your hand and the surface of the rolling board with flour to work comfortably. Don’t shape too thick .Add some chopped garlic and cilantro on the surface of the naan . Press some sesame seeds over them . After shaping , cover them with a wet cheese cloth for 15 minutes to rise up a bit .

4.Heat the Tawa as hot as possible and place the naan there. .. It may take 1/ 2 minutes to get one side done..Flip it over and cook the other side.The flame should be at medium high.

5. After removing from tawa rub the hot naan with butter.That would make your naan softer and also keep them softer for a longer time .


1. You can make naan in oven too at 400 Fahrenheit . But to tell you honestly , naans made on stove r softer and tastier if you compare it with oven made naans and stove made naans stay softer for a longer period of time.

2. If you want to keep them softer , cover the warm naan in cheese cloth or foil to keep the moisture for a longer period!!!!!!!!!

3. Always remember too much hot water or milk always kills the yeast . So the water or milk should be luke warm . Neither hot nor cold or room temperature !!!! And salt also kills yeast . But at the same time sugar or honey is the key ingredient to activate yeast . If you don’t have yeast at home you may try using yogurt instead of yeast ! You have to keep the dough for a longer time for fermentation!!!!:)
