Milk Braid Rolls !

Milk braid rolls are soft, chewy and light. These serve as a perfect bread for your sandwich. Using the quality ingredients makes them better than store bought. The amount of milk and butter used in them might sound a lot but trust me this is what makes them stand out to regular breads and the braids look so attractive that kids just hog on to them without a second thought.

In the northern,southern and western states, the festival is synonymously called Dussehra (also spelled Dasara, Dashahara). In these regions, it marks the end of "Ram Leela" and remembers God Rama's victory over the demon Ravana, or alternatively it marks a reverence for one of the aspects of goddess Devi such as Durga or Saraswati.
Not knowing the significance of it, My childhood passed away thinking Dussehra (for that matter any festival) is meant for enjoying goodies and gorging on to Besan chekki :p .
