Shahi Tukra recipe


  • 6 slices Bread
  • 2 tablespoon Ghee
  • 1 cup Full Cream Milk
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 tablespoon Pista, blanched and chopped
  • Few strands of saffron
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 Cardamom, powdered
  • 4-5 Almonds, toasted and sliced

Cooking Instructions

First you need to cut the edges of the bread. Thereafter, cut it diagonally to form 2 triangles. Keep the bread aside for about 2 hours, so that it becomes hard.

To make the sugar syrup, mix sugar and water and set the mixture to boil. Now, simmer the solution for about 10 minutes and add powdered elachi into it.

Take a pan and set the milk to boil. Simmer it until it reduces to 1/4th quantity. Simultaneously, keep stirring occasionally so that it does not stick to the pan. Now, add pista and few strands of saffron to the thickened milk.

Apply ghee on the sides of the bread and lightly fry them until they turn golden brown on both sides.

Arrange the fried bread on a plate. Pour the sugar syrup onto the bread and wait until it seeps down.

Now, spread the milk mixture onto the bread and sprinkle some almonds, pista and saffron strands over it.

Freeze it and serve when it is chill!!
