SWEET BREAD COINS WITH MAWA


In Sindhi cuisine we have this deep fried bread dipped in sugar syrup which is usually made plain without any mawa topping and served for breakfast.I have tweaked it a little and turned it out into a rich dessert with home made creamy mawa. This has become a big hit in my parties.

Ingredients:
Bread Slices
Sugar - 2 cups
Water - 1 cup
Cardamoms - 4
Saffron - a pinch
Oil for frying

For Mawa:
Milk powder - 3 cups
Sugar - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Cardamom Powder - 1/4 th tsp
Lime Juice or Vinegar

For Garnishing:
pistachios
Cherries

Method:

1. Cut the bread slices in a round shape using a cutter or a bottle lid.

2. Fry till gloden brown and crisp.
3. Make a thick syrup with sugar, water, saffron and cardamoms.
4. Mix 2 cups milk powder with 1 and 1/2 cups water and make paneer(cottage cheese) using vinegar or lime juice.

5. Drain and allow it to cool.
6. In a bowl, mix lightly -1 cup milk powder, the prepared paneer, 1 cup sugar, ghee and cardamom powder.
7. Spread it in a flat dish and microwave it for 3-4 minutes. (Mawa is ready)

8. Crumble this mawa and pour a few spoons of milk to make it of spreading consistency.

9. A few hours before serving, place the bread coins in a flat dish, pour the sugar syrup over them with a spoon and let them soak for about 1-2 hours or until they are softer.
10. Spread the mawa over them and garnish with pistachio powder.

11. For variation you can also garnish with a cherry.


Serve chilled.
