Double Ka Meetha ...doubly delish!

Double Ka Meeta aka Shahi tukre
Doubly delish Double Ka Meeta made with the Double Roti(Thick slices of white bread) resonates the the richness of Hyderabadi desserts. Its required to use the white thick bread slices and deep fry them in brown butter(ghee) for the best tasting richy rich double ka meeta. I broke the rules again,used the whole wheat bread and shallow fried the slices in least amount of ghee.Incredibly it was just as tasty other than the slightly woody taste of the whole wheat bread;)

White Whole wheat Bread Slices 8,edges trimmed and cut diagonally,air dry for a day or toast in 200F oven until dry.
4 tablespoon pure ghee to shallow fry
1/2 cup toasted Nuts (Cashews, Pistachios, Walnuts, Almonds) chopped
1/4 cup raisins or dried cherries
2 cups Whole Organic milk
2 Cardamoms
Pinch of Saffron
3/4 cup brown sugar or white sugar for making sugar syrup with 1 cup of water

Heat butter in a non stick pan and Shallow fry the dried\toasted bread slices until lightly brown on both sides.Set aside
Toast the nuts and dried fruit in any remaining butter in the same pan and set aside.
Bring the milk to a boil,add the saffron and cardamom.Simmer on low heat until its thick creamy and reduced to 3/4 cup.
Meanwhile prepare the sugar syrup with sugar and water.Soak the fried slices in the syrup for a minute.Transfer in a serving platter,pour the reduced creamy milk mixture.Garnish with nuts and fruits ,serve warm.

Skeptical about trying my recipe of DKM,try these DKM recipes and other hyderabadi desserts instead

Sharmi said…
never knew Double ka meetha and shahi tukre are the same :) but I think double ke meeta is more sweeter and shahi tukre uses custard isn't it? what ever it is your recipe looks nice!!
Yasmeen said…
You are right sharmi,shahi tukre are triply rich with custard:)

Yummy and delish.I have seen Lubnas,this looks as tempting without deepfrying.Try wholegrain bread instead of whole wheat.The taste will be same as using normal bread.
Happy to know that with this you had a happy Eid

Is that brown bread or normal bread. Very well roasted. Looks yummy.
Yasmeen said…
lubna,that's whole wheat bread and I used brown sugar to make the syrup,hence the dark color.
