Double Ka Meeta

Somewhere down my memory, I have a flash of this recipe. I always  wanted to try this out, but I was not sure how the final product will be. At last I took the decision of trying this dish with the help from my mom. And the final product was ....awesome.

Double ka meeta is a popular dessert in Hyderabad cuisine. It is similar to "shahi tukda" which is more rich and heavier kind of this dish. This dish is served in weddings and parties as dessert. I remember  as a kid, I used to finish my dessert first and then fight with my brothers for more..:-)

  2. Ghee- 250gms
  3. Cardamom (powdered)- 5nos
  4. Milk- 1/2ltr

  6. water-1/2cup
  7. Saffron threads- a pinch
  8. Cashewnuts (chopped)- 100gms
