About Khajuri Shahi Tukda With Rabri Recipe

A rich and royal mughlai dessert of humble bread fried golden in ghee, sandwiched with mashed dates mixture, topped and soaked with fragrant creamy sweet thickened milk or rabri and garnished with dry fruits. Shahi means 'royal' and Tukda/Tukra means 'a piece'. So literally it means Royal Piece. It is a royal treat to taste buds at anytime. One piece of traditionally made shahi tukda will give you a feeling of royalty. Rich in taste, flavor, aroma and calories. Again this takes me back to my good old days when the traditional shahi tukda was prepared by my Dadi during festive season. I have just tweaked it a little for my own benefit that is stuffing the crispy golden bread slices with moist dates mixture, keeping rest of the dish traditional. This is by far the most exquisite and indulgent of all Indian desserts! It tastes delicious whether served warm or chilled.

How to make Khajuri Shahi Tukda With Rabri

  1. For Pan Fried Bread:
  2. Trim the crust and cut each bread slice into a round shape with a cookie cutter.
  3. On a low flame, heat a non-stick pan or tava with 1 tbsp ghee and toast the round bread pieces until bottom surface turns crispy and golden brown.
  4. Flip and fry until another side turns crispy and golden brown.
  5. Drain the bread slices on a paper towel.
  6. Add 1 tbsp ghee again and toast the remaining batch. Keep aside.
  7. For Stuffing:
  8. Finely chop seedless dates.
  9. Add cardamom powder and mash thoroughly with a rolling pin or masher.
  10. Add the sliced pistachios and almonds to the dates and mix well.
  11. Now divide this mixture into four equal portions and keep aside.
  12. For Rabri:
  13. Bring milk to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring continuously or until the quantity is reduced by half.
  14. Add sugar and continue to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring continuously.
  15. Dip the fried bread pieces in this mixture for 30 seconds, remove and keep aside.
  16. Cook the remaining milk for 5-6 minutes, stirring continuously or until it thickens to a coating consistency.
  17. Remove from the heat and keep aside to cool.
  18. Assembling the Khajuri Shahi Tukda:
  19. Take the prepared stuffing and using hands, make small roundels like for a chapati and make small patty/tikki sized roundels of this mixture same as the size of the pan fried breads.
  20. Now place the dates patty in between two fried bread slices to make a sandwich with the date mixture in between and slightly press to secure.
  21. Repeat the process for the remaining bread pieces.
  22. Add rose essence to the prepared rabri. Mix.
  23. Place the bread sandwiches on a serving dish and pour the prepared rabri on top.
  24. Apply edible silver leaf and garnish with saffron strands, sliced pistachios and almonds.
  25. Place a date on top of each bread sandwich.
  26. Khajuri Shahi Tukda is ready to be served!
  27. Enjoy.

My Tip:

1. If not serving right away, then keep it in the fridge. 2. If you don't find rose water, you can replace it with few drops of kewra water or kewra essence. 3. To make the dish little less in calories, I have pan fried the bread pieces. You can also deep fry them. 4. You can use leftover bread as well. 5. If you plan to serve shahi tukda chilled, then you can prepare the rabri one day prior and chill it in the fridge. 6. Apply silver vark only at the time of serving, whether serving warm or chilled.
