  • 1 litre milk

    200g khoya (solidified milk)

    1g saffron, roasted and crushed

    2g nutmeg powder

    5g cardamom powder

    120g ghee

    350g bread, crust removed and halved

    Sugar syrup, as required (optional)

    50g raisins

    Slivers of pistachio, to ganish


  • Bring milk to the boil and simmer until reduced to half the quantity. Add khoya and stir until the mixture achieves a cream-like consistency. Then add saffron, nutmeg and cardamom powders. Keep aside.

    Now heat ghee in a frying pan and fry the bread slices until golden brown.

    Place the fried pieces of bread in an oven-proof dish and pour the thickened milk over. Let it soak for 15 mins. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180°C.

    Drizzle sugar syrup over the soaked bread and garnish with raisins.

    Bake until the crust gets golden brown. Remove and garnish with pistachio. Serve warm.
