Shahi Tukuda

Ingredients:
10 -12 slices of Bread
2.5 litres of Milk
2.5 cups Sugar (1 cup for Sugar Syrup + Remaining for Rabdi)
1/3 cup Cashew nuts
10-15 Pistachios
10-15 Almonds / Badami
8-10 Cardamoms (1/2 along with nuts, 1/2 for Sugar Syrup)
Pinch of Saffron
2 tsp MTR Badam powder
Ghee

Recipe:
Put nuts, half of the cardamom seeds in a mixer.


Grind them together into coarse powder as shown in the picture below.

Put 2-3 tsp warm milk in a bowl. Crush the saffron, add it to this bowl and keep it aside.
Put milk in a thick bottomed vessel and bring it to boil. As soon as it starts boiling, keep the milk in medium/low flame for about 20 mins. Keep stirring it once in 3-4 mins.

Add around 1.5 cups of sugar and keep stirring the milk in medium flame for about 30 - 40 mins. The consistency of the milk should be like that of milkshake. Add 2/3 of crushed nuts, saffron milk and mix them well.

Stir this mixture in medium flame for about 5 mins.

Once it is cooled to room temperature, refrigerate.

Cut the edges of bread slices and cut them into triangle shape as shown in the picture below.

Apply ghee on both the sides of bread slices and roast them in low flame as shown in the picture below.


Add 1 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of water and prepare the sugar syrup. Add mashed cardamoms and mix them well.

Pour this hot sugar syrup on top of roasted bread slices as shown in the picture below.

Sprinkle Badam powder, remaining crushed nuts as shown in the picture below.

Add prepared Rabdi, refrigerate for around 30 mins and serve chilled.
