Roth is a bread made by the Kashmiris on Vinayaka Chaturthi
or any other auspicious occasion. Roth is made from wheat flour, ghee, black cardamom seeds, poppy seeds and fine white or brown sugar. This bread is presented as offering to Lord Ganesh
, the controlling deity of ‘Buddhi’ (intellect). It is called the 'Pan' ceremony. The prasad
is distributed to all after the performance of
to the Lord. Kashmiri Pundits also send big Roth to the in-laws of their daughters after their wedding as a symbol of thankfulness to God for the unhindered happy consummation of the wedding.
