Instructions
Rabri
  1. In a broad thick-bottomed pan or saucepan take milk and bring its first boil.
  2. Add masala milk powder. If you don't have, just add ¼ tsp cardamom powder.
  3. Remove the clotted cream and add it back to the milk. Also keep on scraping the dried milk from the sides and add them back to the milk.
  4. Stir and scrape often so that the milk does not get browned or burnt from the bottom as well as the sides.
  5. Keep on simmering, stirring, removing the clotted cream and scraping.
  6. Switch off when the milk has reduced and become thickened, after about an hour.
  7. Add sugar and stir well so that the sugar dissolves.
  8. Add crushed saffron or saffron powder along with kewra water. Add sliced almonds and pistachios here if you haven’t already added masala milk powder,.
Pan frying the bread slices
  1. Slice off the crusts of the bread and cut them into squares, rectangles or triangles.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of ghee in a flat pan or frying pan.
  3. Place the bread slices and on a low to medium heat toast them.
  4. When one side is browned, flip and toast the other side.
  5. Flip once or twice more to get an even golden color and browning.
  6. Drain the bread slices on paper towels.
  7. Add the leftover ghee and toast the remaining batch. Keep aside.
Sugar syrup
  1. Mix ½ cup of sugar with ¼ cup water in a pan.
  2. Keep the sugar solution on a low heat and let it come to a boil.
  3. Cook till you get a one-thread consistency in the sugar syrup.
  4. Switch off the flame, when one thread consistency is reached, add cardamom powder and stir.
Assembling the shahi tukda
  1. Dip the bread slices in the sugar syrup and coat the bread slices evenly with the sugar syrup.
  2. Arrange the sugar syrup soaked bread slices neatly in a serving tray or plate.
  3. Pour the rabri on the sugar syrup coated bread slices.
  4. Garnish with sliced blanched almonds and pistachios.
  5. Serve.
