Shahi Tukda

Shahi Tukda is a popular Indian dessert prepared by soaking fried bread in sweet, flavoured evaporated milk. Left over bread slices get a royal makeover when they are fried in flavourful Sarda Farms ghee. The crisp slices are then drenched in flavourful evaporated milk, made using wholesome Sarda farms milk. The stunning end result makes for a delectable party show stopper.



  • 4-5 ‏bread slices (preferably day old)
  • ½ ‏cup Sarda Farms ghee (or as required to deep fry the bread slices)
  • 4 ‏cups Sarda farms milk
  • ‏Pinch of saffron strands
  • 1/8 ‏teaspoon nutmeg (or cardamom)
  • 1/3 ‏cup sugar
  • 2 ‏tablespoons sliced pistachios or almonds


In a wide non-stick pan, bring the milk to a gentle boil.

Add sugar and simmer on low flame, stirring frequently.

Simmer till the milk reduces to half its original quantity.

Add saffron and nutmeg (or cardamom), and stir.

Take it off the heat and cool.

Heat the ghee in a non-stick fry pan on medium flame.

Cut the bread slices diagonally into triangles.

Deep fry the slices in ghee till they turn brown on both sides and crisp.

Take them out of the pan and drain on absorbent paper.

If the dessert is to be served warm, place the fried bread slices on a serving plate.

Ladle spoonfuls of evaporated milk over it and soak for a couple of minutes.

Serve garnished with pistachios.

To serve it cold, chill the prepared evaporated milk for minimum 1 hours and then pour over the bread slices. Refrigerate this for about 15-20 minutes.

Serve garnished with pistachios.


For a quicker and less indulgent version of this dessert you can brush the bread slices with ghee and crisp them in a toaster/oven.

For a richer, more creamy version of the dessert, reduce it to 1/3 of the original quantity instead of ½
