I bet no one will be able to guess the core ingredient. So you can play the guessing game. So go ahead and treat your family and friends to this Hyderabadi delicacy by checking for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.











  • 3 eggs
  • 4-5 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
  • pinch of yellow colour (opt)
  • 1-2 tsp. rose water
  • 1-2 tbsp. pistachios, chopped
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp. ghee
  • pinch of saffron strands





          Heat 1 tbsp. ghee in a pan and roast the breadcrumbs till they turn slightly brown in colour. Transfer to a bowl.  Add milk to it and keep aside for 5 minutes.

          In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, cardamom powder, pinch of colour, rose water and the chopped pistachios till the sugar melts.

          Heat remaining ghee and add the soaked breadcrumbs. Keep stirring on a low flame till it becomes thick and starts to leave the sides of the pan.

          Now add the egg mix and keep stirring continuously on a low flame till it turns into a solid mass and leaves the sides of the pan. 

          Transfer to a greased serving dish. Garnish with the remaining pistachios and saffron strands. Cut into desired shapes once it cools down and serve.



Note - 
1.  You may increase the quantity of ghee as per your preference. 
2. You can substitute cardamom powder & rose water for vanilla essence.
