Dashami is a typical Maharashtrian flatbread (Roti), which can be made savoury or sweet. Sweet Dashami is usually made by mixing wheat flour with milk and sugar or jaggery. Soft, mildly sweet Dashami is loved by kids and adults alike. It also makes for perfect travel food since it stays fresh for 2-3 days. Serve Sweet Dashami with pickle or chutney of your choice for a simple comforting brunch or light meal.
