    Dear friends!



    I am starting my thread with a dessert. This may be familiar with so many people. But the taste and the preparation are different from one another. I have tried so many recipes and only the following recipe of one of my friend gave me the full satisfaction. I wish to share this delicious recipe with all of you.


    SHAHI TUKDA:

    Ingredients:


    White bread slices-6
    Milk- ½ + ½ liter
    Cardamom powder- ½ tsp
    Kewra essence- 6 drops
    Saffron- 2 pinches
    Sugar- 300gms
    Finely sliced pistachios- 2 tbsps
    Enough Ghee to deep fry.


    Procedure:


    Trim all the sides of the bread slices and then cut each slice into two in diagonal halves. Fry all the slices in hot ghee to a golden brown colour and keep them on a kitchen towel. Boil ½ liter milk until it is thickened and then add the cardamom powder and 3 drops of kewra essence to it. Mix well and keep it aside. Make syrup of single thread consistency with the sugar. Again boil the remaining milk with the saffron to half of its quantity. Put off the fire and add the remaining kewra essence.

    And then arrange the bread slices evenly on a broad rectangular or square glass bowl. Pour this saffron milk on the bread slices evenly and either heat it on medium fire or microwave it on HIGH for 3 + 2 ½ minutes. Then pour the sugar syrup evenly on the bread slices and again cook it for 3 to 5 minutes until the syrup is absorbed. Now spread the thickened milk on the slices and sprinkle the slivered pistachios. Cook for a minute. Cool the shahi tukda in the fridge and then serve.

    Thank you

    Hello Mrs. Mano,

    First of all, Welcome to the IndusLadies site. I am also equally new to this site.

    The recipe seems to be simple and I definitely want to try. I get few Canadian guests home from my husband's workplace and it's easy for me to explain this dessert based on bread - so that they can taste it confidentally :tongue

    Just one quick question...what is this 'Kewra essence'? Is it the normal kind of fruit or vanilla or rose water essence types?

    Thanks for your input.

    Rgds,
    Poojitha

    Hello Poojitha!



    I am glad that you are going to try ‘Shahi tukda’ soon. Definitely you will not be disappointed.

    Kewra essence is the essence of Screwpine flower and this fragrant liquid is used to flavour sweets. Rose essence is a good substitute for it.

    Welcome

    Dear Mrs. Mano


    A warm welcome!!

    I am happy to know you for 2 reasons. Firstly, I am getting to interact with an experienced cookery specialist. Secondly, I am a working woman based in UAE (<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:City><st1:place>Dubai</st1:place></st1:City>) and it’s nice to know that you are also based in UAE. Anyways, wish you all the very best and hopefully, me and the Indusladie<st1:personName>s m</st1:personName>embers will have a healthy interaction with you on a long term basis.

    I would like to request few Diwali specials as Diwali is just round the corner. Infact I have asked the same query to Mrs. Chithra Vishwanathan and she has posted whole lot of recipes for the same. I am just curious to know your version of it. I am sure that you will have something special to share.

    Thanks & Regards
    <st1:personName>Lakshmi</st1:personName> Vinoth

    Dear Mrs Mano,

    I would like to ask you one thing. I dont know whether you have any idea or whether you have tried anytime. Last year when i had my kitty i had got this anjir (dry fruit halwa) from mithai shop and then i took crackers bscuits. I covered the whole top of biscuit with the halwa and on top of it spread cream. Garnished with cherry. It was yummy as biscuits were sour and halwa was sweet. My friends praised it a lot.

    I have lots of sweets in my house (like barfi, Kaju katli, pista barfi etc) and all can be broken and made in form of halwa if i want but if i put again on biscuit it becomes same like last year so Can you suggest me something different but everybody should love it and praise it. This time i cant think only. So thought of taking help from you or other creative ladies.

    Any creative idea pls pass it to me.

    Cheers
