Double Ka MeethaI first tasted Double Ka Meetha or Shahi Tukda in a Chicago restaurant called Vishnu Vilas (check this place out if you are looking for a South Indian buffet – amazing food!). I had never heard of Double Ka Meetha before and since that was the only dessert they were offering that particular day – I had to give it a shot to cater to my sweet tooth cravings. It was YUM but I had no idea what it was made of – it felt like a concoction of Sheera and Rabdi.. little did I know that it was made of Bread!

Double Ka Meetha aka Shahi Tukda is a traditional Hyderabadi dessert that is made from deep frying bread in ghee and then soaking them in sugar syrup and reduced milk. My recipe is slightly different but yields the same results but without deep frying bread or using sugar syrup. Here’s how – check out my microwave version of Double Ka Meetha.
