Ingredients

  • 6 bread slices
  • ghee or clarified butter or vanaspati dalda for frying
  • 2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • pinch of orange food color
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 500 ml full cream milk
  • 8 saffron strands

For Garnishing:

  • 1/2 cup sliced cashews, pistachios, almonds

Instructions

Make Sugar Syrup:

  • In a cooking vessel add water, sugar, cardamom powder and orange food color.
  • Stir well and boil the syrup on low flame until the syrup is sticky when touched with fingers.
  • Rest it aside and allow it cool down.

Thickening milk:

  • Add ful cream milk in a pan and add saffron strands into it.
  • Stir well and keep boiling it until the milk is reduced to half.

Frying the bread:

  • Cut out the corners of the bread, then cut the bread slices in the form of square cubes.
  • Deep fry the bread slices on medium flame in ghee or dalda or oil until golden brown.
  • Remove the fried bread slices.
  • Saute sliced cashews, sliced almonds and sliced pista in ghee for few seconds and take them out.

Making the meetha:

  • Take the fried bread slices and place the slices separately in the sugar syrup.
  • Pour the reduced milk all over the bread.
  • Let the bread slices cook for few minutes until the syrup and milk gets absorbed.
  • Top it up with sauteed sliced dry fruits over the meetha.
  • Add crushed khoya over the bread slices but is entirely optional.
  • Serve hot.

Notes

  • Before deep frying bread slices, dry the bread cubes for few hours. Using this tip helps in frying the slices very quickly and also requires less oil/ghee/dalda (vanaspathi).
  • Instant cutting and deep frying absorbs more oil while frying.
  • If oil is used for frying the bread slices then spread some ghee from the top while cooking bread in syrup and milk for a better taste.
