Double ka Meetha

Ingredients
  • Bread Slices -4
  • Milk - 500 ml (I used Full Cream Milk)
  • Khoya/Milk Solids -1/4 cup - grated
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup - to taste
  • Mixed Nuts - 1/2 cup (mix of cashews,raisins,almonds & pistachios)
  • Ghee - to deep fry - as required
  • Cardamom & Saffron - a generous pinch or two
Method
  • Cut off the edges of the bread & slice them in to quarters. 
  • In a pan, heat the ghee & deep fry these slices till golden brown. 
  • Take care not to burn them. Put the slices on an absorbent paper & set aside. 
  • In the same pan roast all the nuts till they are golden brown. 
  • Set aside. In a separate milk pan, add the milk & bring it to a boil.
  • Add the cardamom & saffron strands to it as it simmers and add the required sugar.
  • Now add the grated milk solids/khoya and let it simmer till the quantity reduces to half & thickens.
  • Arrange the bread pieces in a tray/plate/deep dish. 
  • Pour the sweetened & spiced up milk little by little till the fried beauties are completely soaked n drenched.
  • Sprinkle the roasted nuts and let it sit out for some time till the milk mix is absorbed by the bread pieces. 
  • If the milk still remains un absorbed you can put the dish in a preheated oven & bake @ 180 C for 5-7 minutes. 
  • I didn’t have to put them in the oven as within minutes the bread pieces beautifully soaked up the thickened milk mix.
