How to make Sitaphal Shahi Tukda

  1. Preparation Time: 15 minutes. Cooking Time: 01 to 1 ½ hour. Refrigeration time- 01 hour.
  2. For the Rabri: In a heavy bottomed pan, add milk, bring to a boil. Add the sugar and cardamom powder and simmer over low flame / heat. Do not stir too often, as a layer of cream should form over it.
  3. After the layer is formed, keep pushing it away from the sides towards the centre with the help of a wooden spatula Keep stirring the milk below it gently to avoid scorching / burning. Repeat the process till 1/3 rd of the volume of milk
  4. The wider the vessel and the richer the milk, the faster it will thicken. When done, the colour changes to a beige-cream / off white, and the cream that was pushed aside, collects in layers. Add the chopped nuts. Remove from the flame.
  5. Let it cool. Add the Custard Apple Pulp, mix well. Transfer to a glass bowl. Refrigerate to chill for at least 01 hour.
  6. For the Shahi Tukda: With the help of a cookie cutter cut the bread slices into neat round shapes usually it is cut into triangles but I personally prefer cutting into a round shape.
  7. Shallow fry in clarified butter. Place on an absorbent paper to remove excess of clarified butter. For the Serving: Place the fried Bread, dip in sugar syrup / mildly sweetened warm milk for 05 -08 minutes.
  8. Place on the serving plate, pour the Rabri over the fried bread.
  9. Serve chilled garnished with broiled saffron (Optional), Silver leaf, Raisins, slivered pistachio nut and almonds. You may also garnish it with fresh rose petals.

My Tip:

Chef Tips: 1. Make sure that the milk does not burn as, then it is next to impossible to rectify the burnt milk. 2. You may add a few drops of kewra essence or natural screw pine essence / Rose water when the Rabri is done. 3. You may use brown bread or multi grain bread, as per your preference.
