Siddu | Lentils in a Steamed Bun from state -Himachal Pradesh

Siddu a "Himachali dish" is one of the most loved dishes in Himachal mostly in Mandi, Kullu, Manali, Rohru and Shimla. It is just a kind of bread made from wheat flour.


Steaming yields a unique texture to the buns, quite different from baking. A steamed bun obviously lacks the golden crust, but makes up for it with a uniformly soft and spongy texture.
