Dil Pasand / Dil kush

Dil Pasand (liked by heart) is a delicious bakery bun. The outer layer is beautiful flaky and soft and the stuffing is a sweet made with coconut and tutti frutti. It is heaven in the form of this pastry. This is very popular in bakeries and is also called as Coconut Bun. I got this recipe from here and this is a sure crowd pleaser. I have used single color tutti frutti, but if you use multi colored ones, it will be even more pretty!!!

  15. Please change the oven temperatures to C. You have mentioned 180F and I tried this recipe and it was a disaster. I then cooked it on the tawa and salvaged it.Thanks.

  17. Hi,
    Have really enjoyed the recipe for the past few years. Can you pls post the recipe for the other pastry that doesn't have tutti fruitti and coconut filling? My daughter has braces and the filling gets stuck. Your recipe will be much appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Vasudha
