And this steamed bread have a stuffing in it. Though the stuffing can be anything, however the most known stuffing is prominently prepared either with walnuts or paneer along with a combination of vegetables. This steamed yeasted bread is definitely a must to try. Normally served with ghee, dal or with coriander chutney, this steamed bread is quite famous during winter. Warm Siddu is definitely a fabulous dish to taste while the weather is bit chilled outside. Traditionally Siddu is shaped as half moon, however they can also rolled as round buns. Siddu is a typical dish of Himachali cuisine which is definitely a delicious bread. I tried Siddu at home for this month’s  a monthly event started by me, which is now hosted by Mayuri Patel.
