Cook Time : 30 Min

Total Time : 40 Min


Serves : 6
  • Whole wheat bread slices – 6

  • Milk - 2 cups

  • Milk powder – 4 tbsp

  • Sugar – 0.5 - 1 cup

  • Cardamom – 2

  • Chopped dry fruits/ nuts (cashew, almond, pista) – 2 tbsp

  • Rose essence – 2 drops or 1 tsp of gulkand

  • Ghee – 2 tsp


  • Dissolve milk powder in milk and bring to boil. On boiling, add sugar & crushed cardamom. Boil further on low flame until it thickens a bit and reduces 1.5 cup.
  • Switch off the heat and add rose essence or gulkand. If you prefer saffron flavor, then add saffron while boiling milk and leave rose essence.
  • Remove edges of bread and cut into desired shape. That is triangular or into smaller squares or rectangles.
  • Brush each piece of bread with little ghee and place on a microwave safe baking tray spreading evenly. Keep it in the microwave oven and heat for 2 minutes.
  • Now turn each slice on the tray so that other side faces up. Heat it for one minute again.
  • Remove from the microwave oven and arrange the bread pieces on a tray or bowl as desired.
  • Pour the prepared milk on it so that every piece of bread gets milk to absorb.
  • Garnish with roasted nuts pieces and rose petals/ saffron. Set aside for 5-10 minutes.
  • You can serve it warm or chilled. Both taste great.
