Some people like their Shahi Tukda crisp but some people like it really soft. I usually like the soft version so i skip making the sugar syrup, but, if you are someone who like a nice crunch, then you can make a sugar syrup alternatively and dunk the toasted breads into it, for around 20-30 seconds.

I started with making flavored thickened milk syrup (rabri) by simmering the full cream milk on the stove and flavored it with cardamom and rose essence, and, the end result was far better than what i thought. Everyone in my family just loved it. You can also use condensed milk or milk powder but I prefer making the rabri with full cream milk.

Toast or deep-fry the bread pieces in a clarified butter, dip them into the prepared thickened milk syrup and arrange them on a serving plate. Sprinkle some nuts on top. Freeze for 30 minutes, then serve.

Cooking time: 20-30 minutes
Author: The Food Root

Ingredients

6 Freshly Baked White Bread Slices, Purchased or Homemade
4 cups Full cream Milk or Condensed Milk
1/2 cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Rose essence (optional)
5 tablespoon Butter, room temperature
5-6 Cardamom pods, crushed
5-6 Almonds, sliced

Method

1. Heat milk in a non-stick pan. Stir and bring it to boil till it reduces half of its quantity. Add sugar, cardamom pods and rose essence for flavor and mix it well. Add in the crushed pistachios and almonds, and, stir occasionally to avoid milk sticking to the pan. Once it's reduced and thickened, turn off the flame and let it cool down to the room temperature.

2. Remove the edges of the bread with the knife and cut them into diagonal shape. Heat one tablespoon of butter in a non-stick skillet over medium low heat. Place the bread and cook it from the both the sides till it becomes crisp and golden brown.

3. Dip each crispy bread piece into the prepared thickened milk syrup for about 20 seconds and arrange them into the serving plate.

4. Pour the remaining milk syrup over the pudding. Sprinkle some pistachios and cashews over it. Freeze for 30 minutes, then serve.

Notes

1. Add sugar as per your taste.
2. For more flavoring, you may add a pinch of saffron to the milk syrup.
3. Instead of soaking the balls in sugar syrup, they are soaked in thickened milk syrup.
4. You can serve it warm or refrigerate it for later.
