Dil Pasand Dinner Roll

Nothing taste delicious like sweets, i remember of my schooling days used to eat often the coconut buns from the bakery. It's delicious and i like that yummy buns and stuffed with loads of grated coconut,sugar and tutti frutti. Atleast i eat 2 buns at the same time, its been long time i tasted the coconut buns. A few days before i came across the Dil Pasand in Sushma's blog immediately it reminded me my favourite coconut buns.Thanks Sushma for reminding me about it. I can't wait to try that one, but last week i didn't find coconut in my veggie shop. This week i found the coconut and bought only to try the coconut buns. But, it will be simple changes from Sushma's Dil Pasand i changed 2 things one is with dinner roll and other one is i used brown sugar. I am passing my favourite Coconut stuffed Sweet Dinner Roll to Sweet Sushma. I hope u like my version of Dil Pasand.
