   Ingredients needed

   Bread - 9 slices
   Milk - 2 1/2 cups
   Sugar- 3/4 - 1 cup (as per your taste)
   Kesari color - a pinch (mix it with a little milk)
   Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
   Oil for frying
   Ghee - 1 tbsp for frying nuts

   Nuts and dry fruits

   Raisins - 10
   Cashew nuts - few
   Pistachio - few
   Toasted almonds - few


Preparation

Remove the edges of the bread, cut it diagonally and sun dry it or air dry it (under the fan) so that it does not absorb much oil.

Deep fry the bread in oil until brown on low flames to prevent the bread from getting burnt. Keep it aside. Traditionally it is deep fried in ghee but I have used oil.

Fry raisins, cashew nuts in ghee separately. Keep it aside.

Boil milk and add kesari color to it.

Method

Take just enough water to soak the sugar. Add cardamom powder and boil the sugar water. Prepare sugar syrup. The sugar syrup should neither be thin nor thick.

Add the fried bread to the sugar syrup and cook for a few minutes.

Then add milk, simmer and cook uncovered till it reaches a semi solid state. It should not be dry.

Garnish with cashew nuts, pistachio, raisins and toasted almonds.

Enjoy it warm or cold as it tastes great both ways. I prefer to have it warm.

Note - Both the milk and the sugar syrup should not be hot as there are chances of the milk curdling. So make sure, the milk is at room temperature while adding to the sugar syrup or the sugar syrup should be at room temperature.
