How to make Double Ka Meetha

  1. Trim the edges of bread slices and cut each slice into 4 triangles (if the bread slices are bigger) or 2 triangles (if the bread slices are smaller). Keep aside.
  2. Now prepare the sugar syrup by boiling water and sugar on medium flame till 1 string consistency. Then turn off the flame, add rose water, give a quick stir and keep aside.
  3. Pour milk in a heavy deep bottom pan, boil on low-medium flame until reduced to half. By that time the milk'll be of thick consistency, like rabri.
  4. Always make sure to keep stirring the milk occasionally, otherwise it'll stick to the bottom of the pan and can get burnt.
  5. Add cardamom powder along with saffron, stir well. Turn off the flame and keep aside to cool.
  6. In a nonstick tawa, shallow fry the triangular bread slices with ghee. Instead of shallow fry, these can be deep fried in ghee which is the traditional method.
  7. Dip each bread slices into the sugar syrup and arrange in a serving plate. Pour the thickened milk (rabri) over the bread slices. Sprinkle finely chopped nuts and few saffrons over the rabri.
  8. Serve this delicious dessert double ka meetha chilled or warm !

My Tip:

Sugar syrup preparation step can be omitted by adding sugar directly to the milk while boiling. Always keep stirring the milk occasionally while boiling, otherwise it'll stick to the bottom of the pan and can get burnt. Trimming the edges of bread slices is optional.
