Eid Mubarak to all…..
Every eid I will be trying out different dishes and so for this time, I made a delicious dessert which will be loved by all.
Eid is a time where we will be celebrating with family and friends. In the morning we will do our prayers, exchange eid greetings, then after breakfast we will be busy with lunch preparations. Who doesn’t love to have an amazing dessert after a heavy lunch. In the evening will go out to meet friends and family.
Shahi tukda is a sweet made of bread, milk, sugar, saffron and garnished with nuts. I didn’t had saffron. It is a most famous dessert in Hyderabadi weddings. As I grew up in Andhra, when I was a child, I used to love to visit weddings especially for this dessert. It is a must have dessert for weddings in Hyderabad.
This is similar to that of Double ka Meeta, another dessert. The ingredients are same only the preparation varies.
My husband and my kid also love this and so I made it for Ramadan. We can also use condensed milk, but here I reduced milk and added.
The aroma of the fried bread pieces soaking in the sugar syrup is to die for… This is so easy to make and with very less ingredients, within minutes we will be having a perfect royal dessert.
Try this out and let me know….
