Sidu or Sidku is a sort of thick fermented roti of wheat flour with paste of opium seeds. The wheat flour is kneaded with yeast and the dough is allowed to rise for 4-5 hours. It is first browned over a slow fire and then steamed. It is normally served with ghee or clarified butter, dal or lentil broth as well as with mutton. This is very popular in upper Shimla hills.
