In parsi dish sandh-rra is similar to aapam. The sandhra is thick about 3-4mm. The difference is that we steam it and we use toddy instead of yeast and also top with some charoli (dry fruit). We eat them just plain its delicious. This is now a fforgotten dish in Parsi community. Try this and let me know
Thank you for freshening up my memory.
