Instructions

How to Make Milk Rabri:

1) In a saucepan over medium heat, add 2 cups of milk and 1 cup of heavy cream. Cook for 15 minutes and let it come to a boil. It should thicken slightly after 15-20 minutes. Once slightly thickened, add 3 tsp of sugar, 2 tsp milk powder, 1 pinch saffron, 1/2 tsp cardamom powder & 1 tsp each of chopped almonds and pistachios.

2) Cook for another 15 minutes, and then turn off the heat and add 1 tsp rose water.

3) Set aside to cool.

Shahi Tukray Sugar Syrup:

1) In a pot, add 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup water and a pinch of saffron.

2) Bring this to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes on low until slightly thickened.

3) Once ready, turn off the stove and set aside.

Frying & Assembling Shahi Tukda:

1) In a large frying pan, add 1 cup of ghee or butter.

2) Cut your bread slices in half diagonally so they form a triangle shape.

3) Fry your slices of bread until they are golden brown.

4) As you take out each piece of bread from the oil, dip it in the sugar syrup.

5) After it is dipped in the syrup, place the bread on your serving dish.

6) Once all the slices have been dipped and arranged in your serving dish, pour the cooled Milk Rabri mixture you made earlier over the top.

7) Garnish with chopped almonds, pistachios and desiccated coconut.
