ROAT (Semolina Biscuits)


ROAT ‘ is Hyderabad’s traditional confectionary (cookie/biscuit) which is relished by people of all faith. Roat is my favorite too and I love to have it with a cup of Tea. The place where I reside in Pune has many old traditional bakers who sell Roat biscuits but I usually give an order with specifications. So, this time also when I visited my Hometown during vacation I had placed an order for 1kg Roat biscuits.

Roat has religious significance and is a seasonal delicacy but people like these biscuits throughout the year.  The main ingredients of Roat are wheat flour, Suji(semolina), sugar, clarified butter, salt, vegetable oil, cardamom, and milk. Additionally, they use chopped almonds, cashew nuts, pista, poppy seeds etc to add more flavors to the biscuits.  The most important part of this biscuit is getting all the ingredients in the right proportion and when perfectly baked it gives a nice brownish color and crunchy from outside and soft within which will definitely tempt your taste buds.


There are two types of Roat one you get ‘crunchy and hard’ and the other is crunchy from outside and soft within. So, you can ask seller from the bakery which kind of Roat you need, my suggestion would be to give the order if there are more family members so that they can also relish the biscuits.

My Order: 1kg Roat should be made in pure Ghee, added cashew nuts & charoli (Buchanania Lanzan), crunchy from outside and soft within.


I just love the taste of biscuits, it absolutely melts down in the mouth giving a perfect balance of sweetness and crispy flavor of sprinkled poppy seeds on it. Each bite gives a mix flavors of cashew nut and charoli. Best is to have it with a nice Hot cup of tea!!



What else I could wish for, view of a beautiful evening, rain, from the window with a Cup of tea & Roat!!










Suggestion: Roat should be stored in an airtight container. It will remain fresh and crispy for a month.
