Shahi tukda


Here comes my second post on Holi Recipes.Shahi tukda is one of the easy & rich dessert recipes which is loved by all especially kids.I had been tempted many times by seeing the posts of our fellow bloggers and was waiting to try at least once in my kitchen.Last week i went to a restaurant with my friends and i tasted this shahi tukda for the first time.It was served warm and we all liked it very much.In the menu card,this recipe was mentioned as Shahi tukda @ Double Ka Meetha,When i saw that,i thought both were same and its a two in one sweetWinking smile.But when i browsed,i found Double Ka meetha is a Hyderabadi dessert which is similar to shahi tukra in procedure but the consistency is like a bread pudding.

As i am too calorie conscious,i deep fried the bread slices in ghee for Raksha alone.For Myself & Sendhil, i thought of deep frying it in oil but i was worried whether oil smell would be predominant.At last i went for baking option.I have discussed both the methods here.Both has its own taste and flavour.Baked bread stayed crispy for long time.So u can prepare in advance and add sugar syrup and rabri whenever u want and serve warm.If u are calorie conscious like me,do try baking method else follow the usual procedureSmile with tongue out.

Note


  • As i have added more saffron threads,my rabri became deep yellow in color.So please add less if u want light in color.
  • Deep frying in ghee and baking has its own taste difference.Try any based on ur wish.If u are calorie conscious,do try baking method.It won’t disappoint u.
  • Give deep fried breads for kids & guests.They will love it like anything Smile.
  • No consistency is required for sugar syrup.Prepare like gulab jamun syrup.Add rose essence or cardamom powder.
  • Please adjust the quantity of sugar based on ur liking.

  9. Wow..this is too good. My mom used to prepare a similar one called Bread Jamun, but the bread is cut to bite-size and fried in ghee/oil. Baking is a healthier option. I should update my post with your idea. Thanks
