  • 4 pieces - bread
  • 1/2 litre - milk
  • 1/3 cup - sugar
  • Ghee or oil, for deep frying
  • 2 tbsp - chopped nuts
  • 1 tsp - corn flour
  • Saffron - a pinch
  • 2 to 3 drops - rose essence

How to Make Shahi Tukda

  • Boil milk and add saffron soaked in 3 tbsps of warm milk. Add the corn flour mixed in 2-3 tbsp of milk to it and simmer the milk until it reduces to a thick but pouring consistency. This is called rabri.
  • Add rose essence in the end.
  • Add the chopped nuts at this stage.
  • Remove the crust of the bread and cut diagonally.
  • Fry the bread pieces till golden brown and crisp evenly.
  • Prepare a thick sugar syrup by boiling the sugar with little water just enough to immerse the sugar.
  • Soak the bread pieces as you fry them, just for a minute or until you take the next batch.
  • Arrange the soaked pieces on a plate.
  • Fry the chopped nuts in ghee and add it over the bread pieces (if you have not done that in the first step).
  • Pour the rabri over the arranged bread.
  • Serve chilled or warm.
  • But make sure you give some time for the bread to absorb the rabri.
