“Shufta” is a Kashmiri sweet dish, it can’t be called a dessert because it is served with the lunch or dinner itself.   Its a lavish sweet made of dry fruits and infused with sugar and kesar and delicately spiced with soonth, Cinnamon and pepper. It has heating properties due to the generous use of dry fruits and ghee and hence ideal for harsh winters of Kashmir.





  1. Soak all the dry fruits in water for 1/2 an hr. Drain and keep aside.
  2. Heat the ghee in a non stick kadhai. Fry the cubed paneer till golden. Now fry the coconut till light brown.
  3. In the same ghee fry all the dry fruits, add the elaichi powder, pepper powder, soonth powder, cinnamon powder, kesar, fried coconut, paneer cubes and the sugar. Cook till the sugar melts.
  4. Serve warm garnished with rose petals
