Shahi Tukre

This dessert is something I have made 5-6 times. It really melts in our mouth. I have tasted "baked" version of "Shahi Tukre" in some restaurants. That doesn't come near the taste of ghee fired bread dipped in sugar syrup and topped with milkmaid and nuts. Try out this recipe and you will understand what I meant. Weight watchers better watch out. This contains lots of calories.

Preparation time:10 min   Cooking Time: 15 min         To serve: 10-12

Milkmaid ( Condensed Milk) - 1/2 tin
Bread - 8 slices
Milk - 1 cup
Cornflour - 1 tbsp
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Almonds and Pistachios (chopped) - 1 tbsp
Ghee to fry
Sugar - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup


  • Make a paste of cornflour with some milk. Mix rest of the milk with milkmaid and bring it to boil. Add cornflour paste. Stir continuously until it is thick. Add cardamom powder.Keep it aside.
  • Prepare syrup by boiling water and sugar together.
  • Cut bread slices into 2 and deep fry it in ghee till golden brown.
  • Immediately dip it in sugar syrup. Dip for one minute and arrange it on a serving dish
  • Top each piece with 1 tbsp mixture of milkmaid and nuts. Chill and serve.
