Mother's Day Treat ! A ROYAL INDIAN DESSERT - SHAHI TUKDA ! ~ Re Posted

Mother's are the Place
 where love Emerges
from the earth,

And happiness rings
out like bells..........

In honor of our birth
Mothers are the
sun that lights,

for our inner sky
So we may know

that we are loved
and not question

Mother's are the moon
that shines
upon our black despair

So even when we
weep we know
that some one's always there

Mother's hold their
children's hand
for a while, but
their hearts forever

Mother's are loving
Mother's are Patient
Mother's are giving
Mother's are beautiful

No matter which journey
or which life's season
Mother's will be there....

If I had a single flower
for every time I thought of you
I could walk in my garden


Although here in UK mother's day was on 3rd of April..that time I was in India at my mother's place..sadly my mum wasn't there for me..:( ,and I was away from my we are celebrating today and having great day so daughter specially thought about my gift very carefully..before I went to India I was mentioning to update my electric toothbrush, and she kept that in her mind and guess what..............:) yeppppppppppp !!!!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH MY DARLINGS...hubby treated me with yummy lunch...

In return I wanted to treat my special ones, so I thought of making something easy to make yet royal ( since we had a royal wedding in UK ) made for all occasion...A ROYAL INDIAN DESSERT... SHAHI TUKDA.....  The traditional sweet has its genesis from Hyderabad where fried bread slices are soaked in warm milk with cardamom, saffron and sugar for enriched flavor and garnished with nuts..It is served with a plain pudding called 'Rabri' made by milk thickened over low heat enriched with Almond meal.I made  cashew nuts, Raisins and Cardamom bread at home and used slices from that thing is for sure that this dessert will enlighten your senses....:)..Surely mine did;)

Ingredients:- for Bread
  1. water 11/8 cup
  2. Skimmed milk powder 2 1/2 tbsp
  3. Sugar 1/4 cup
  4. Salt 11/4 tsp
  5. Oil 21/2 tbsp
  6. Strong white flour 3 cups
  7. Cardamom powder 1/4 tsp
  8. Dry yeast 11/4 tsp
  9. Raisins and cashew nuts 1/2 cup
Method :- I used my bread maker..

Ingrdients for Shahi Tukda :-
  • Bread slices - 4 ( I used my own home made bread )
  • Ghee - 3 tbsp
  • Milk - 2 cups
  • Double Cream - 2 cups
  • Sugar - 75 grams
  • cardamom powder
  • Saffron threads
  • Few nuts like almonds and pistachio
Remove the crust from the bread and cut them in to your desired shape..I cut them into triangle shape. Heat ghee in a non stick pan and shallow fry them till lovely golden colour.  Remove them and leave them a side.  In another non stick pan boil milk till become thick..add cream and sugar and let it boil for 8-10 minutes. Then add cardamom powder and saffron and leave it for few minutes. In a serving dish place fried bread slices and pour thickened milk and garnish with nuts..Chill in refrigerator for about half an hour and enjoy as much as we did...and promised each other that we will burn lots of calories on our exercise machines which are collecting dust ;)...I have five of them :)

Till my next post happy cooking and blogging..enjoy this beautiful song from the movie Jagriti...
