About Sahi Tukda (Royal Toast) Recipe

Sahi Tukda is a bread pudding soaked in hot milk and spices, a North Indian specialty which has its roots in Pakistani cuisine. It is particularly prepared during the festive month of Ramadan and on Eid, Some people say it’s similar to Double ka Meetha which is a specialty from Hyderabad. It’s easy to make but is too much calorie packed and involves quite an amount of work in the preparation. Assembling is the easiest part. For this festive season, it’s the perfect reason to indulge.

Ingredients to make Sahi Tukda (Royal Toast)

  • Bread (White / Brown) - 4 slices
  • Full Fat Milk - 1/2 Litre
  • Dry Fruits ( pistachios, Almonds, Cashew) - 1/4 cup
  • sugar - 1/3 cup
  • cornflour - 1 tsp
  • ghee - 3/4 cup
  • rose essence - 2 drops
  • saffron - 4-5 strands

How to make Sahi Tukda (Royal Toast)

  1. Remove the edges of the bread and slice them diagonally into two triangles. You will get 8 triangles from 4 slices.
  2. Chop the nuts. Heat a non-stick pan and add 3 tsp of ghee. Add dried fruits and toast for a couple of minutes and keep aside.
  3. In the remaining ghee fry the bread triangles till they turn uniformly golden on both sides.
  4. Take milk in a thick bottomed pan and bring to a boil. Cook on medium flame and allow the milk to reduce to half its original quantity and get a Rabri like texture. Add sugar as per taste. The mixture will be sweet enough.
  5. Add saffron strands and stir. Mix cornflour with 2-3 tbsp milk and add it to the reduced milk and mix. Add the rose essence and roasted chopped nuts. Cut off heat and let it cool down to room temperature.
  6. Chill it in the fridge till serving time.
  7. In another pan take some water and sugar. Boil it till the sugar dissolves and the mixture becomes a bit thick. Turn of heat and let it cool to room temperature.
  8. Soak the bread pieces in the sugar syrup as you fry for a couple of minutes only and take them out and place on a serving dish.
  9. While serving, pour the chilled rose flavored thickened milk over the bread slices, garnish with some more toasted nuts, bits of silver foil, rose petals, drizzle some rose syrup and serve.

My Tip:

The dessert tastes better when chilled.
