shermal mainThose living in Karachi will second my opinion that this sweet bread “SHEERMAL” is one of a popular and famous bread in Karachi. People normally serve this with Qorma of all types. Here in Punjab you will not find the similar Sheermals. When I saw Shiren appa’s recipe of Sheermal I decided to try it very next day. Thou Sheermals were very delicious and perfect but were not like Karachi wala Sheermals. They were like Taftans in fact 🙂 But I liked them a lot. So am sharing the recipe with you.
