Shahi Tukda

Shahi Tukdas are my all time favourite Indian Sweet dish. It is both sweet and crunchy at the same time. I always try making it in different ways so that every time I eat it has something new to offer. I came across this recipe on Facebook on Nestle Milkmaid Sweet Moments Page, so I couldn't resist to make it.

Shahi Tukda

1/2 tin Milkmaid (Condensed Milk)
1cup Milk
1tbsp Cornflour
2-3tbsp Milk (Separate)
1tsp Cardamom Powder
8 Slices Bread
Mixed Nuts ( Almonds+ Pistachios + Cashews)
Oil/ghee to Fry
Silver Vrak

For the Sugar Syrup:
1cup Sugar
1cup Water

For the Milk Mixture:

  • Make a paste of cornflour with 2-3tbsp of milk. Mix well so that no lumps are made.
  • Take a Pan, add in milk in it. Bring it to a boil.
  • Add in cornflour paste. Stirring continuously so that no lumps are made.
  • Lower the flame, add in Condensed milk + Cardamom powder. Mix well.
  • Cook until the mixture becomes slightly thick.
  • Remove from Flame. Keep it aside.
Preparation of the Bread:
  • Cut the Bread slices in triangular shapes. Keep it aside.
  • Heat Oil/Ghee in a Kadahi to fry the bread slices.
  • Fry the bread slices. Keep it on a tissue paper to remove the excess oil.
  • Now prepare sugar syrup by boiling sugar and water together. Add in 1/2 tsp of Cardamom powder in it.
  • Boil it till it becomes one string consistency.
  • Now dip each fried bread slice in the sugar syrup. 
  • Just for a fraction of a minute so that it remains crisp.
Plating of the dish:
  • Take a serving plate, place the sugared bread slices horizontally one over the other like a stair-case.
  • Pour the thickened milk mixture over these bread slices.
  • Garnish it with chopped nuts and silver vrak
  • Serve hot or cold.
