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.

Pin for later
