Bread Kheerka

I assume all of us here know how to make kheer.

Now either deep fry some slices of bread or you could toast them.

Place the toasted/fried bread on a plate and pour some kheer over it. Add some saffron as garnishing.

Tastes good.And an easy desert to make.

PS: if anyone doesnt know how to make kheer please let me know

Cancer Tai...something new style. Is it your own innovation ? "Bread Kheerka" good name pick up. Do you mean regular rava/shevaya/rice kheer with milk or rice kheer with jaggery?

Re: Bread Kheerka

i think this thing is called "double ka meetha"... famous in Andhra...

Ingredients:
1 loaf bread (small)
1 litre milk
500 gms sugar
250 gms double cream
250 gms clarified butter
100 gms chopped and roasted cashewnuts
100 gms almonds (soaked and chopped fine)
100 gms raisins
10 gm saffron
5 cardamoms, powdered

Method:
1. Cut each bread slice into four pieces. Fry them in clarified butter till golden brown.
2. Make a sugar syrup by adding half a litre of water to the sugar and boil it for 15 minutes. Add the powdered cardamom and the saffron dissolved in milk to the sugar syrup. Boil milk until it is thickened.
3. Arrange the fried bread pieces on a flat tray and sprinkle the chopped nuts on them. Pour the sugar syrup, double cream and milk alternately over the bread pieces while they are still hot.

We used to call this Shahi Tukda/Tukdi .. recipes are available on the web for it too... Double ka meetha is probably in Andhra only

Hey Sarv, where are you lately? Didn't see you around, got married?

BTW, I made this dessert this morning. I kinda cheated though. I did not deep dry the bread. I just used little ghee to toast the bread in a pan. It took a long time. After finishing the bread this way I started wondering why I didnt use the toaster instead .

I think I put too much milk and too little cream or dont know where I went wrong. The bread was way too soft, so i didnt even bother layering (its supposed to be crisp) but taste was OK. I guess the real trick is to deep fry. Oh well, next time...

You had the proper recipe ..... FRY the damn bread!!

Thats what gives it a little bit of bite even after soaking in the rabri. If you dont fry the bread, it will turn into mush!

deep frying is precisely what I was trying to avoid. But i guess I dont have a choice but to deep fry. Also, is it true that bread takes up too much ghee while deep frying it? I never tried it....

You can choose not to fry in ghee if you dont want to. Use clean vegetable oil, you wont lose too much in flavor, because of all the other "heavy" stuff in there.

The way we made it at home was to deep fry the bread, dip in the sugar syrup and then pour rabri on top of it. So less water content.
