Shahi tukda is a royal dessert and easy one too surprisingly. You can make it every time you have a bit of bread or rabri left over.It is delectable and super yum.One of the desserts which combine both the crispness of bread and the mushy creamy rabri.These days breads are not just used eaten with jam & butter.Bread sweet recipes like shahi tukra or bread dahi bhalla also a great way to use extra bread.So is bread pakoda and bread roll.
If you do not have rabri ready,pour some condensed milk on the fried bread.Serving shahi toast with condensed milk gives you similar taste.However,the output is not as delicious as the original version but still a quick fix.
Tip: Serve the bread immediately after putting rabri on it else it will get soggy.
Nostalgia and Shahi tukda
My mom makes amazing Shahi tukra.It is a very easy dish when you got guests coming.
Bread was always at home growing up.She was a working mum and always had to be on her toes.Yet,She was always up to make desserts no matter how busy.Every festival deserved a treat so that we learn it to.Now as a mum myself I wonder how much work she did without complaining and with so much perfection.This is her recipe served with the same love and perfection.
Perfect to end the meal after a good spicy jackfruit biryani.
Why is it called double ka meetha?
Bread is also called as double roti as it doubles in size after it is baked.Meetha as in sweet.It is a Hyderabadi special after biryani,haleem.
Hence the name, double ka meetha as in sweet bread.
