Dilkush buns/bread – eggless sweet buns recipe

    I have seen the recipe for dilkush buns in so many blogs though I have never had it before. But I have always loved sweet buns, so I had bookmarked this recipe for years.I finally got to make it few days before. It turned out really delicious and we enjoyed biting into the sweet little fruits and the coconut in the buns. The aroma while baking is also just divine. I do want to make this again.I hope you enjoy it too!!
