Shahi tukda

If you have stale bread loaves left in your fridge then there is no need to throw them in the bin. Use them to make a quick and easy and delicious dessert which is called shahi tudka. Originated in the royal kitchens, it tastes quite creamy and rich and melts in the mouth quickly. If you are given surprise visit by the guests then you can make it within a minute to serve. Down is the very simple recipe to make shahi tukda.

  • Half kg milk
  • Three tablespoons sugar
  • Six slices of bread
  • 250 grams Khoya (milk cheese)
  • 5 pieces of almonds
  • Kesar (saffron), a little
  • One tablespoon ghee
  • One teaspoon Cardamom powder
Preparation Process:
Cut the brown corners of the bread slices, cut each slice into two triangles and fry them golden brown in the ghee. Boil the milk together with cardamom powder till it thickens. Add sugar, saffron and khoya and cook till milk turns to creamy consistency. Arrange the fried bread slices in a serving dish and pour the thick milk over them so that every inch of the slice gets covered by the milk. Garnish with almonds and serve hot or cold as you like.
