Sheermals is a sweetened Naan made out of Maida (All-purpose flour), leavened with yeast, and baked in Tandoor or oven.

This is sweet bread. In the olden days, it was made just like Roti . The warm water in the recipe for Roti was replaced with warm milk sweetened with sugar and flavored with saffron. Nowadays, the restaurants make it like a Naan and the final product resembles Danish pastry.

2. White Table Sugar: 1 teaspoon
3. Warm Milk at 100º F to 110º F: ¼ Cup
4. Saffron: 6 Strands
