Shahi Aam Tukda - (Bread Based Dessert - Hyderabadi / Telangana Style)


          This is an instant version of the popular Hyderabadi Dessert - Shahi Tukda. It is a very easy one which needs very less preparation and can be dished out in a ziffy. I gave a slight twist to the recipe and drizzled some mango rabri over it. 

          I made use of evaporated milk, mango puree and other flavourings and also cut down on ghee for a healthier version. Yet the end result was a delicious creamy bread dessert. Please check below a step by step guide with pictures to prepare it.






  • 1/2 cup mango puree
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • castor sugar to taste
  • 3 bread slices, trimmed & cut into half, in a triangular shape
  • 2 tbsp. chopped nuts
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamon powder
  • pinch of saffron
  • 1 tsp. rose water
  • ghee to shallow fry
  • 1/2 cup mango cubes





          In a bowl, mix together puree, milk, sugar if using, half of the chopped nuts, cardamom powder and rose water. Your  instant mango rabri is ready.

          Heat ghee in a pan and shallow fry the bread slices till golden in colour. Drain and keep aside.

          While serving - Pour some mango rabri on the serving plate. Then neatly arrange the fried bread slices in a row over it. 

          Spoon the remaining rabri over the bread slices and garnish with remaining nuts, mango cubes, saffron and a pinch of cardamom powder.



Note - 
1.  I shallow fried the bread slices. but you can go ahead and deep fry them. 
2.  I used evaporated milk for this instant version, but equal quantities of condensed milk and milk can be substituted or you can reduce a litre of full fat milk to the desired consistency
3.  You can make sugar syrup and soak the fried breads in it for a while. I avoided it as the bread turns soggy and moreover it turns too sweet.
