Shahi Kalakand Sandwich Tukda

          I made a fusion of the popular Hyderabadi dessert - Shahi Tukda. As I had some leftover homemade green peas kalakand, I made sandwiches out of it. I also made some instant rabri. Then I arranged the sandwiches (cut into two / four each) on a serving plate and drizzled the rabri over it. I then served, garnished with some chopped almonds, pista and dry rose petals. My innovative fusion dessert is ready. 

1.  Kalakand - 
  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas, blended
  • 100 gms. paneer 
  • 1 tbsp. milk powder
  • 2-3 tbsp. powdered sugar or to taste 
  • pinch of cardamom powder
  • 1 tsp. ghee
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp. kewra water
  • 1 tsp. chopped pistachios
  • 1 tsp. chopped almonds

           In a non-stick pan, add the blended peas and stir fry till dry. Keep aside. 

          In the same pan add all the ingredients including the green peas. Mix and stir on a low flame till it starts to leave the sides of the pan. Switch off the flame and keep aside. 

2.  Sandwich - 

  • 6 slices of bread
  • butter as required 

          Spread some butter on the bread slices and make sandwiches in a sandwich maker with the kalakand as stuffing. Cut them into 4 slices and keep aside. 

3.  Instant rabri -
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • powdered sugar to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. cardamom powder
  • pinch of saffron
  • 1 tsp. rose / kewra water

          In a bowl, mix together all the above mentioned ingredients and keep aside for 15-20 minutes for the saffron to soak well. Your instant rabri is ready.

4.  Garnish - 

  • 1 tsp. chopped almonds 
  • 1 tsp. chopped pistachios
  • 1 tsp. dry rose petals 

          To serve - Arrange the kalakand sandwiches on a plate and pour the rabri over it. Garnish with chopped almonds, pistachios and rose petals. Your Shahi Kalakand Sandwich Tukda is ready to enjoy. 

Note - 

1.  I used evaporated milk for instant rabri, but equal quantities of condensed milk and full fat milk can be substituted or you can reduce a litre of full fat milk to the desired consistency
2.  You can make sugar syrup and soak the sandwiches in it for a while. I avoided it as it turns too sweet.
