How to make Shahi Tukra

  1. In a pan boil milk, sugar and boil in very slow flame.
  2. Keep scraping off the creamy layers back to the milk which is boiling.
  3. Continue till it reaches a thick consistency
  4. This is called rabri. ( we can do this ahead and keep ready in our refrigerator).
  5. Take 6 bread slices and cut them diagonally which gives us 12 triangles.
  6. Fry then in non stick pan with ghee.
  7. To give a caramelized colour, i sprinkled little sugar to get golden colour.
  8. Now arrange them in a serving dish and add raisins, pour rabdi over the bread slices .
  9. Keep in refrigerator and serve chilled

My Tip:

To cut short our time, we can add condensed milk to milk. Reduce sugar quantity if using condensed milk
