A community recipe by

I was watching 'Chew' in Travel and Living yesterday afternoon, Nigella made one of those delectable strawberry ice-creams, I got tempted and wanted to make a sweet delicacy by myself at home. Since I am running with high temperature, ice creams were certainly not allowed. So, I tried this recipe, which is a famous Indian sweet delicacy.


Serves: 4

  • 5 slices white bread
  • 10 tablespoons butter / ghee
  • 3 cups milk
  • dried fruit (to garnish)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom powder


Shahi Tukda is a community recipe submitted by Mugs and has not been tested by so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Cut each slices of bread in small cubes.
  • Heat the ghee in a pan. Add the bread cubes and deep fry them until light brown. Take the bread pieces out and allow it to cool.
  • Meanwhile, boil the milk with sugar and cardamom powder for about 15 minutes or until the milk becomes very thick. This is known as 'Rabri' in Hindi. Allow this to cool and refrigerate it.
  • Put a dollop of Rabri over 4-5 pieces of fried bread cube and garnish it with dry fruits, and enjoy the Indian delicacy!
