Quick Shahi Tukda

This afternoon, after lunch, I was craving for some Shahi Tukda, and then I sat and looked at random pictures on Google, and that made the craving soooo strong, I wanted some immediately.

But to make the rabdi, it takes a lot of time, and I didn’t want to work so long for it. I’ve used brown bread, pan-fried instead of deep-fry, condensed milk instead of rabdi and reduced the amount of sugar used.

So here’s presenting a super quick Shahi Tukda, with some slight modifications to make it as healthy, tasty, and as quickly as possible.


Serves: 3-4

Brown bread – 3 slices  (Crumbs removed and  the slices cut into cubes)
Ghee – 2 tbsp
Water – 1/2 cup
Sugar – 1/4 cup
Rose water – 1 tsp
Condensed milk – 4-5 tbsp
Saffron – 1-2 pinch
Pistachios – 4-5

Step 1: In a non-stick pan, heat some ghee, and pan-fry the bread until crisp.

Step 2: Prepare some sugar syrup, by boiling the water and sugar until slightly thick. Add rose water when done.

Step 3: Soak the cubes of bread in the sugar syrup. Transfer to a plate.

Step 4: Top with condensed milk, nuts and saffron.

Enjoy hot or cold, however you like it! 🙂
