Sheermal refers to a special type of Kashmiri roti. It is a special sweet bread prepared using yeast. It is made of wheat flour, sugar, butter and milk, flavored with saffron. This bread is about 20 cm in diameter, 2 cm thick, and the crust is covered with sesame seeds. It is usually baked in traditional tandoor or in inverted pressure cooker.

The "Sheermal" which was invented in Lucknow, India by an ace bread-maker by the name of Muhammadan, is a rich bread consisting mainly of flour, milk, fat and saffron. Though traditionally cooked in an iron tandoor, it can be cooked in a mahi tawa also by covering with a lid and applying heat from the top and bottom.
