Shahi Tukray

Ingradients :

White Bread 6 slices

Sugar 1 cup

Water 1/2 cup

Cardamom 2-3

Saffron 2-3 strands (optional)

Oil for frying

Milk 4 cups

Evaporated milk 1/2 cup

Chopped pistachio for decoration

Preparation:

Cook milk until it's 1/4 of its quantity ,then add evaporated milk cook until thickened ,keep stirring constantly as you don't want the milk to burn,when thickened set it aside to cool down

Cut the bread slices into four triangles ,I prefer to keep the crust but it's your choice,

To make sugar syrup boil sugar ,water , cardamom an saffron strand in a heavy bottom sauce pan, cook until sugar is completely melted and it becomes light syrup ,take it off the stove and set aside

Now deep fry bread sliced until golden brown,keep the heat on medium high heat and keep a close eye as bread get brown fairly quickly

Take the bread out on a plate

Now dip the dip bread pieces in sugar syrup let it soak ,then take out and place on your serving dish ,

When your finish soaking all the breads ,spread cooled and thickened milk on top of the bread evenly

Sprinkle with chopped pistachio ,let it cool in the fridge or serve as is and enjoy!!!
