Double ka Meetha

This is a dessert recipe made with bread as base. Its simple to make and a sure treat for parties.

White Bread- 8 slices
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Water - 2 cups
Milk - 2 cups
broken Cashews - 2 tbsp
Pistachios - 2 tbsp
Raisins - 2 tbsp
Oil - for deep frying


1. Slice the bread and keep it out overnight to remove the excess moisture. Else you can even keep in it oven over 300F for 15 mts

2. Heat the milk in a pan. When it comes to a boil simmer it. This has to boiled on low flame until it reduces to 1/2 cup. Keep stirring it every now and then so that milk doesn't settle on the corners. After it reduces to 1/2 cup turn off the flame

3. When the milk is boiling, make the sugar syrup parallel. Heat 2 cups of water in a bowl and add sugar to it. Boil this for 10 minutes and keep it ready

4. Deep fry the sliced bread pieces in hot oil/ghee until dark brown on both sides. Be careful not to burn itas bread tends to cook fast. Fry the nuts and raisins in the same oil and keep it aside

5. Soak the fried bread pieces in the sugar syrup and remove it quickly once it absorbs the syrup and keep it on a serving dish. Do the same for all the bread pieces and arrange them in a serving dish preferably a large tray

6. Over these bread slices pour the simmered milk and on top arrange the fried nuts and raisins.

7. Double ka Meetha is ready to serve. This can be served hot or cold.

Since bread is deep fried it takes too much oil. If u r very health consious, just toast the bread pieces in oven on 400F for 15-20 mts. This may not be evenly browned. After this follow steps 5 to 7 and its equally good.
