Shahi Tukda is a very rich and delicious Hyderabadi dessert recipe. This dessert recipe is quite easy and can be prepared in less than 30 minutes. I made this dessert last Sunday and honestly we just loved it..!!
- Bread – 4 Slices
- Milk – 2 cups
- Almond & Pista – 1 tbsp
- Sugar – 1/4 cup
- Water – 1/4 cup
- Safforn - 4 to 5 strands (soaked in warm milk)
- Ghee – as needed
- In a sauce pan add milk and bring it to a boil until the milk becomes thick and half the quantity. Add the chopped almonds, pista & soaked saffron. Set this aside. This is called Rabdi.
- Trim off the brown edges from the bread slices and make shapes as you like. I have used heart shape cookie cutter to make these. You can cut each bread slices into 4 triangles.
- Drizzle a generous amount of ghee in a pan & toast the bread until deep golden brown.
- In another pan add sugar & water. Allow the sugar to dissolve completely. Once done let the syrup boil until 4-5 minutes and turn off the heat. Keep aside.
- Dip each bread slice in the sugar syrup coating it both the sides and transfer to the serving dish.
- Just before serving pour the chilled saffron favoured milk on top of the bread slices. Garnish with the chopped almonds and pistas.
