Shahi tukda. Decadent Indian style pudding featuring saffron infused rabri and ghee fried bread dipped in sugar syrup. Perfect way to end a delicious meal!
Do you love bread pudding? The combination of delicious bread and the sweet sauce is simply divine. So how about making the Indian version of this delicious pudding?
This shahi tukda or Indian style bread pudding is a decadent combination of two main elements – saffron rabri and fried bread. Obviously, it’s topped with plenty of almonds and pistachios.
The classic rabri is made by simmering milk over low heat for a long period of time. To shorten the process, I’m going to use a different technique of combining condensed milk, sugar and breadcrumbs along with milk. You’ll need to stir the mixture continuously until it gets a thick consistency. I also like to add a little saffron milk and ground cardamom to the rabri.
To make this shahi tukda, you’ll also need fried slices of bread. Cutting the bread into triangles is the most classic way to prepare your bread. These triangles are then fried in ghee until they’re golden brown.
To make the fried bread a little sweeter, dip them in warm sugar syrup. A simple combo of sugar and water simmered together until it reaches one string consistency.
Finally, assembling this shahi tukda. Place rabri in a bowl, top with fried bread, and sprinkle with lots of your favorite nuts.
