Hyderabad Double Ka Meetha

Happy new year to all my friends!!!!!

Nice to start blogging after a break…. Had a wonderful time in India…. A lot of shopping, traveling and food. Was back 2 weeks before. My little one is getting settled slowly, he is missing Chennai a lot….

I am starting this new year with a sweet. The Hyderabad special double ka meetha, this is my version of double ka meetha. Tried to cut down some calories. I have toasted the bread with some ghee instead of deep frying. And for the milk mixture I have used the fat free milk.

Ingredients : 

White bread - 5 slices
Ghee - 2 teaspoon
Dry fruits and nuts - ¼ cup (I have used almonds, cranberries)

For Milk mixture:
Fat free milk - 2 cups
Sugar - 3 teaspoons
Cardamom powder - ½ teaspoon
Saffron - 1 heavy pinch

For Sugar syrup:
Sugar - 1 cup
Water - ½ cup
Cardamom powder - ½ teaspoon

Procedure : 

Boil sugar and water together until a sticky consistency is formed. (just before one sting consistency)

Remove the crust and spread ghee on both sides of the bread and toast the slices until golden brown and set is aside.(optionally, bread can be deep fried in ghee ). Fry the dried fruits and nuts with some ghee as well.

In the mean while heat milk in a pot and reduce it until ¾ of its volume. Now add the saffron and sugar and boil for 2 minutes and finally add the cardamom powder and set it aside.

Now finally assembling the dessert. Dip the bread slices into the sugar syrup and assemble it on a wide plate. Sprinkle the fried fruits and nuts on the top. Now pour the milk mixture over these fried bread pieces. (I have garnished with some raw finely chopped pistachios and sliced almonds).
