Dumroot is a traditional home-made sweet dish popular among Tanjore Muslims. It used to be baked in an oven heated over a bed of sand. Nowadays it is baked in a convection oven. My grandmother used to bake this on our visits.

What you need

Butter – 250 gm

Condensed milk – 150 ml

Semolina (Sooji) – 350 gm

Sugar – 450 gm

Eggs - 6

Pour the mixture in a 10-inch cake tin.
