Double Ka Meetha
Double ka Meetha or the bread sweet, however it is called, it is one of the hot favorites of Hyderabadi dessert! It is usually served in functions and parties. I learnt this dish from one of our cook's. She taught me how to do this easily and deliciously! So, lets see how to make this dessert.
1 cup sugar (accordingly)
2 tbsp raisins
2 tbsp whole cashews
2 tbsp sliced almonds
1 cup water
2 cups Ghee (accordingly)
1.Firstly Boil about 2-21/2 cups of milk, according to the number of slices of bread, it is just an approximation. Add one cup of water and sugar and stir well till the sugar dissolves well. Check the sugar levels here and add if needed.
2. Now, in a frying pan, add about 1/2 cup ghee and fry all the nuts till the raisins bulge neatly. Don't over burn them as the raisins taste bitter if heated extra.Remove from the pan.
3.In the same pan, add the remaining ghee and deep fry the white bread slices. People prefer to do one by one, but this consumes a lot of ghee, so I prefer making the bread slices into 2 or 3 pieces and fry all of them at once so that every bread piece is fried in the ghee.
4.Now, add the milk into the bread, most of it is absorbed by the bread, style it with all the fried nuts.
You could add some pecans or any of your fav nuts and heavy cream or sugar syrup to make it more rich.
