As I was searching online for chicken dum biryani, I came across this yummy sweet. After I referred to few blogs about the recipe, I’ve decided to shelve the idea of preparing biryani. Double ka meetha will be ready to eat in less than 30 minutes except if you want to eat it chilled. I also learned that this dish is prepared mostly during Deepavali (Diwali) festival. With the festival less than a week away, I was all excited to try this dish. I’ve not used too much sweet to suit our taste buds. So you can adjust the sugar or add condensed milk as per your taste.
Milk: 2 Cups
Sugar: ½ – ¾ Cup
Water: 1 Cup
Cardamom Powder: 1 big pinch
Ghee: 1 Cup
Cashew nuts, Almonds, Pistachio and Raisins: few each (Optional)
Malai: 1 tablespoon (Optional)
Condensed Milk: 2 tablespoons (Optional)
1. Cut each bread slice in to (4) triangular pieces. (You can just cut them in to 2 diagonal pieces also)
2. Heat ghee in a wok and fry the bread till the pieces turn golden brown. Roast the nuts and raisins in a tablespoon of ghee and keep aside. Arrange the fried bread pieces in a wide bowl.
3. Bring water to boil. Add sugar and let it dissolve. Add the cardamom powder and let it boil for 2 minutes.
4. Pour sugar syrup onto the fried bread pieces and let them soak for 10 minutes.
5. Add the roasted nuts and raisins to the fried bread soaking in sugar syrup.
6. Combine milk, malai and condensed milk. Bring to a boil on medium flame. Pour the milk mixture over the bread pieces.
7. Let the bread pieces soak for another 10 minutes.
8. Double ka meetha is now ready to serve. If you want it chilled, refrigerate and then serve.
