A piece of Royalty-Shahi Tukda -Prepare a Small Serving of the Dessert

There 's no Mughlai dessert as decadent as the Shahi Tukda. Essentially , it 's just bread pudding with dry fruits , with a little cardamom  flavour thrown in for good measure. But simple as it is to prepare,it beats even the popular favourite  Gulab Jamun . Here's a handy little recipe tp prepare a small serving of the dessert.

Ingredients :

  • 6 slices of bread
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • 1 cup full cream milk
  • 2 tablespoons pista, blanched and chopped
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cardamom, powdered
  • 4-5 almonds, toasted and sliced
  • Few strands of saffron 
  • Rempve edges of bread slices and then cut diagonally to form two triangles from each slice .Store bread in a dry area for about two hours to make it slightly hard (or simply pop it in the toaster for a bit).
  • Prepare sugar syrup by boiling a mixture of sugar and water. Simmer the blend for 10 minutes and then add cardamom.
  • Boil milk in a pan till it reduces to a quarter of its original quantity while continuously stirring. Add pista and saffron to thickened milk.
  • Apply ghee to sides of bread and shallow fry till it turns golden brown.
  • Arrange friend bread on plate and pour sugar syrup. Wait till it seeps in.
  • Spread the milk mixture onto the bread.
  • garnish with sprinkles of almond ,pista and saffron or silver varak. Refrigerate till chilled.
Notes: Alternatively ,if you don't wish to fry the bread, use milk bread and toast it. For a richer flavour, add four tablespoons of condensed milk to the milk to the mixture while boiling.
