RECIPE
Cooking Time: 20-25 mins
Preparation Time: 10-15 mins

Ingredients:

  • Milk : 3 cups
  • Bread: 5 slices
  • Saffron: few strands
  • Ghee to fry
  • Nuts: 2 tbsp ( chopped)
For the sugar syrup:
  • Sugar : 1/4 cup
  • Water : 1/2 cup


Method:





  • Soak saffron strands in warm milk, keep aside.Boil the milk in a heavy bottomed  pan on medium heat. Boil the milk till it is reduced to almost 1/3 of the original quantity stirring occasionally. Once reduced in quantity, add in the sugar and  the saffron milk to the boiled milk and stir well until everything mixed well.


  • Remove the corners of the bread and cut into 2 pieces.Shallow  fry the bread in ghee such that it becomes crisp. Keep aside.


  • Prepare sugar syrup by heating sugar and water in a pan until a syrup like consistency is formed. It should be thick and sticky. Keep aside.
  • Soak each slice in the sugar syrup and arrange it in a plate.Then pour the prepared milk(rabri) over the bread slices to soak well. Garnish with chopped nuts toasted in ghee. Serve chilled.



Notes:
  • To make it healthier you can use brown bread and toast them instead of deep frying.
  • Deep fried/toasted bread slices should be crispy else when soaked in milk it will become soft.
  • You can use either white or brown bread.
