Shahi-tukra-shahi-tukda

I tasted Shahi Tukra aka Shahi tukda in ‘Ganges’ restaurant 4 years back! After that never again. I had a recipe in my hand written cook book(written and given by my mom Happy). So few weeks back I had a craving for some sweet and thought of trying this Shahi tukda recipe. I don’t know the difference between this shahi tukra and Double ka meetha,hope both are only same recipes with different names. Deep frying in ghee gives the original royal taste,but if you are calorie conscious, just toast in a OTG or bread toaster till golden brown. The bread slices should be crisp evenly,which is very important. Otherwise the dessert will turn soggy and you have to name it pudding!!Laughing
Shahi tukda-recipe

Shahi tukda recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Dessert
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 45 mins    Serves: 4

Ingredients


Bread  4 pieces 
Milk  1/2 litre 
Sugar  1/3 cup 
Ghee / oil  For deep frying 
Chopped nuts  2 tblsp 
Corn flour  1 tsp 
Saffron  A pinch 
Rose essence  2-3 drops 

 

Method:

  1. Boil milk and add saffron soaked in 3 tblsp of warm milk and the corn flour mixed in 2-3 tblsp of milk to it and simmer the milk until its reduces to a thick but poring consistency. This is called Rabri. Add rose essence at last.If you want you can add the chopped nuts in this stage.
  2. step1
  3. Remove the brown sides of the bread and cut diagonally. I cut one piece into four,though cut into two will do.Fry the bread pieces till golden brown and crisp evenly. Use a shallow and small pan so that un need not use more ghee/oil.
  4. step2
  5. Deep frying in low or medium low flame is necessary to get crisp and golden brown colour, other wise will end up in uneven cooking.Prepare a thick sugar syrup by boiling the sugar with little water just to immerse the sugar.
  6. step3
  7. Soak the bread pieces as you fry them,just for a minute or until you take the next batch.Arrange the soaked pieces in a plate.
  8. step4
  9. 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,as per your wish, I like it chilled!! But make sure you give some time for the bread to absorb the rabri.

Notes:

  • I used low fat milk,since I ran out of full cream milk stock…hehe,not calorie conscious,I swear…
  • You can reduce a litre of milk to half and make rabri rich too instead using corn flour.
  • You can add sugar in rabri if you want.Just a table spoon or two will do.
  • If you use oil for deep frying,oil smell will be there in the dessert,so I if you are afraid of so much ghee,you can try toasting method as its far way better than the oil smell. Just fry the nuts in ghee and add,that will give you the ghee smell.

  27. I looooooooooooove this a lot Raji.. both double ka meeta and shahi tukda both r same, the pictures are just awesome. One tip.. air dry the bread for few hours, deep frying after that will absorb only little oil or ghee. We used to add scramble khoya on the top... The first picture is making me droollllllllll.

  74. Raks kitchen,

    Thanks for your reply,never expected a reply looking at this long comment list.

    It took me one hour to thicken the milk,I used the same measure as yours and used cornflour mixed in water of milk,used a milk cooker maybe thats the reason it took so long.I thought I was going to end up making therati pal (milk halwa) but that didnt happen and it came out well in the end.

    Thanks for the recipe and waiting eagerly for the next recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Great dessert.. Lovely clicks !!

  76. i had made it once long time ago...u are making me crave for some more..wonderful recipe and clicks.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Appu :).. you are right,milk cooker will take time and will not reduce in volume as it uses double boiling method...next time use vessel, the regular direct boiling method and see if it helps ..

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hey luks simply delicious.....will surely try out nd post my comments soon.....Just one small suggestion,it would be helpful if u add the number of servings to the recipes so that we can add/remove the amount of ingredients in accordance with the number of persons.

    ReplyDelete
