MANGO MALAI SHAHI TUKDA / CRISPY BREAD ROUNDELS WITH CREAMY MANGO


Mango is my favourite fruit and I can never stop trying out more and more recipes each season. Here is a variation of the traditional Hyderabadi dessert, Shahi Tukda. I had some home made malai, which combined with mango pulp made an excellent topping.
Here goes the recipe.

Ingredients:
Bread slices ..... 4
Mango pulp .... 1 cup
Malai / home made cream .. 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder ....... 1/8th tsp
Sugar ................. 2 tbsps
Ghee / clarified butter .... 2 tbsps
Crushed pistachios ......... 1 tbsp
Red currants or cherries ... for garnishing
Silver varq .................... for garnishing


Method:
Cut the bread slices into roundels using a cookie cutter.
Heat a flat bottomed pan and melt the ghee. 
Shallow fry the bread roundels on low flame until crisp and golden brown.
In a pan cook the mango puree and malai together until well blended. It takes about 2-3 minutes.
Add the sugar and cardamom powder. Allow it to cool.
Place the fried breads in a serving platter and spoon the mango malai mixture on them.
Spread it evenly and sprinkle the crushed pistachio nuts.
Garnish with silver varq and red currants or cherries.
