Shahi Tukda Recipe – Delicious & Healthier in 20 minutes | Healthier Indian Desserts

Hey Foodies,

There are a lot of times when you have guests over and you want to serve them something quick and fast, but it should be delish!

shahitukdathumbir

My aunt(or my dear Mamiji) served me this last time when I visited her.. She is a workhorse in cooking I must say, ask her anything to make and she’ll churn out for you in the least time possible, with the best taste and twists! She heard me & my dad talking about Shahi Tukda a night earlier, and voila next morning’s breakfast is sorted for her 😛 Okay, let me share how she made, She had used an cookie cutter to cut the bread pieces and then toasted them.. Then she made some thin rabri(usual method), and served in a bowl.. It was delish!

shahitukdair2

So a few days back, I thought to make this, but I was aiming to make this in a time-limit of 20 mins.. So, I made it by toasting bread in ghee, then making rabri using condensed milk+milk.. And also skipped the sugar syrup.. First two attempts were awry, but things were sorted on the third, and was delish.. So here it is, Let’s dig in to the recipe..

Shahi Tukda Recipe - Delicious & Healthier in 20 minutes | Healthier Indian Desserts
 
Ingredients
  • Milk - 1½ Cups (Full Fat)
  • Condensed Milk - ½ Cup
  • Bread Slices - 2
  • Ghee - 4-5 Tsp
  • Cardamom - 3-4
  • Saffron - few strands
  • Ghee - 4-5 tsp
  • Cashews, Almonds, Raisins - few
  • Edible Silver Leaf - to garnish (opt.)
Instructions
  1. Start by heating the milk in a wide big pan in high flame. Stir it once in a while.
  2. Heat up another pan, add 2 tsp ghee along with the cashews and almonds.. Stir and shallow fry the nuts until light golden. Then add the raisins and continue stirring until they puff up, take down the nuts to a bowl.
  3. Keep an eye on the milk, and stir it often. Toast/shallow fry the bread in the renaming ghee from the nuts.. Once the one side is brown, pour in about ½ tsp ghee in the uncooked side and flip and toast.. Add in the kesar to the milk, and stir it & keep on reducing.. (Timestamp : 8 mins)
  4. After 2-3 minutes of the kesar being added, add the condensed milk to the milk and stir it.. And we're going to cook this for another 5 minutes..(Timestamp : About 10 mins)
  5. Take the bread out from the pan after its done, then toast another bread, same way.. Just pour in some ghee in each side before toasting..
  6. Keep stirring the milk often after adding the condensed milk to prevent it from sticking & burning to the bottom..
  7. Crush the cardamom pods to make a powder.. The second slice of bread must have been done now, take it down..
  8. After about 15 minutes have passed, and the rabri looks thick and bubbly, it's all ready! Lower the flame, add the cardamom powder and mix.. Switch off the flame!
  9. Cut the bread slices into small triangles, also rough chop the fried nuts.
  10. In a plate, place the bread, scatter a few chopped nuts then pour over some rabri.. Add some almond slivers, kesar and edible silver leaf.. Enjoy the heavenly delicacy 🙂

What are you waiting for, quickly make this and enjoy 🙂

That’s all for today, Thanks!

  • Black pepper : ¼ Tsp
  • Garam Masala - 1 Pinch
  • Sugar : ½ Tsp
  • Vinegar : Less than ¼ Tsp
  • Salt - To Taste
Instructions
  1. Start by proofing the yeast, to do so In a mixing bowl add the Warm Milk, followed by sugar. Mix really well, then add the Instant Yeast. Stir and keep aside for 10 mins in a warm spot like a turned off microwave or oven.
  2. Add the flour, salt, milk powder in your working platform. Mix and make a well. Once the yeast mixture froths and activates add the mixture in the center of the well and mix to make a sticky, soft, paste kind of dough.
  3. If your dough does not turn out to be a sticky, soft, paste kind of mass add more warm milk to make it so.
  4. Once the sticky mass of pasty dough is formed, add the Hudson Canola Oil and start kneading the dough. Knead this for 15 mins, by that time this pasty dough would form into a kind of ball of dough.
  5. Do Not add any flour or anything, just keep kneading for 15 mins.. Make sure to scrape the dough from the surface time to time.
  6. Once kneaded, transfer to a greased bowl, cover and let it proof for One Hour or until doubled in a warm spot like a turned off microwave or oven.
  7. For the Stuffing : In a pan, add the Hudson Canola Oil. Once hot, add the cumin seeds along with the kasoori methi.
  8. Add the chili, garlic, onions, potatoes, beans, corn, carrot, and peas. Toss it and cook for 2 minutes.
  9. Season it by adding the pepper, chat masala, red chili powder, garam masala, cumin powder. Stir and cook for 3-4 mins or until the veggies are about ¾ cooked.
  10. Once the veggies are done, switch off the flame and add the vinegar, sugar and the salt. Stir and keep aside. You can add some coriander leaves chopped as well.
  11. Once the dough is doubled in volume, take it down to your dusted working surface and knead it for a minute. Divide into 7 equal portions.
  12. Just like you fill momos or stuff parathas, stuff the dough portions with the filling. To do so, take a portion kind of start flattening the portion and make sure the edges are thinner than the center.
  13. Keep a good tablespoon or two of the filling, gather the edges and press to seal. Sprinkle some flour if it feels its extremely sticky, kind of roll it between your palms to make a round shape.
  14. Grease a 6" Round Cake Tin/or a steel/aluminum container of such size with oil. Place the Stuffed Buns in there. Stuff all the dough portions like so and keep in the round cake tin.
  15. Brush these with some milk and sprinkle some sesame seeds. Cover and let the shaped buns proof for another hour or until doubled.
  16. Preheat your oven to 200 C.
  17. Once the stuffed buns have proofed, brush generously with milk gently. Place inside the oven and bake for 15 Minutes at 200 C.
  18. Take them out, brush with butter. And let them rest for a minimum of 15 mins.
  19. Loosen the edges, and take the buns out, ENJOY 🙂
Notes
You can also make these a night before and pack as a lunch next morning 🙂
Feel free to add more or less or any veggie that you wish for. You can skip the onion and garlic if you wish to 🙂
Sometimes, the flour absorbs more moisture and sometimes less.. That is because of the protein level of the flour.. So, add the 95 milliliters of the milk at the first, if it forms into a pasty kind of dough, Great! Otherwise add more milk to make it pasty and sticky 🙂

Stuffed2Buns1
Right out of the oven!
StuffedBuns2
Look, Look at the filling.. Doesn’t it tempt you? Try it once and you’d be drooling over them! 😀

These are literally outstandingly amazing! Jog right in your kitchen, and make these which are literally like Chatpati Veggies Filled Cotton Balls 😀

That’s all for today, Thanks 🙂

Paneer Tikka Masala – Restaurant Style Recipe / How to cook tikka in Charcoal at home.

Hey,

Paneer Tikka is one of the starters which we relish to the core whether its anytime in the day or year, and its bigger brother Paneer Tikka Masala is a dish we all order..

PaneerTM (1)

Why order from a restaurant, cause it has a subtle flavor and a distinct smokey aroma and taste.. All, that magic is in the charcoal..

PaneerTM (3)

You must have tried PTM someday or the other right? And the recipe called for either grill on a tawa or oven.. It must have came out good, but there was lack of something right? Its smoke/charcoal dear!!! And without the real cooking in charcoal, it can led to a butter-paneer style.. Which is good, but.. So, let’s get to the recipe 😀

PTMT

Videofy yourself first 😛

Now textie?

  • Sugar - ¼ Tsp {Optional}
Instructions
  1. For Tikka : Into a mixing bowl, add all the dry spices and sattu. Mix well. Add yogurt, little at a time till you get a thick paste.
  2. Add in the ginger, garlic, lemon juice. In a small pan add 2 Tb canola oil. Once it starts smoking, switch off the flame and pour in the smoky oil to the marinate. Stir well.
  3. Throw in the onions, peppers and paneer. Get your hands in there and make sure it coats well. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for 30 mins(more is better).
  4. Heat up a gas tandoor/baati maker and place in the charcoal. Put the grill rack and cover lighly. Heat up for 15 mins in high flame.
  5. Skewer the marinated paneer and veggies in any order to the wooden skewer and keep in a plate for a moment. Once done, take the skewers and place this inside the tandoor on the grill rack.
  6. Cover and cook for 2-3 mins.
  7. To the leftover marinate, add 2 tbsp oil and brush this to the paneer tikka after 2-3 minutes of cooking. Cover and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
  8. Try to turn them over, being extremely careful as it can catch fire. Now cook for another 2-3 minutes uncovered.
  9. Take them out and keep aside. These are so delicious that you cannot stop yourself from eating them.. But, save some for the sabzi 😛
  10. For Masala / Gravy - In a wok, add the canola oil, Once hot add the black cardamoms, once it sizzles, add the ginger garlic and cook till the raw flavor is gone.
  11. Spoon out the brown onion paste and stir well. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add salt to taste and pour in the boiled tomato paste.
  12. Cook till it starts leaving sides and oil, then add the kashmiri red chili powder, pepper powder, coriander powder. Cook for a minute or two.
  13. Add the red food color(optional), leftover marinate, sugar.. Stir well, and also add half of the corn flour mix, and stir well.. This will make the masala silky, if it does not, add the rest of it. Stir well and cook for a minute or two.
  14. Add a tsp of fresh cream, coriander, green chili, lemon juice, and stir well. Add the paneer tikka and stir gently, Pour in ¼ cup water if its very thick. Cover and cook for 2 minutes and serve HOT!
Notes
Be extremely careful with the charcoal tandoor. It can catch little bit of fire at any time, so be careful. The effort is all worth, the result would be one of the bestest dish!
Alternatively, you can grill the veggies in a tawa/grill tawa/grill modes on microwave/oven at the max temp. For the smokey flavor, you can add a drop of liquid smoke if you wish to. On the other way, you can place some active charcoal on a baking sheet on the lower rack and grill the tikka in middle rack. 🙂
For the boiled tomato puree, I took 5 tomatoes, chopped then boiled in ¼ cup water for 5 minutes, and pureed.
For Brown Onion Paste, Slice, Fry and blend the onions with some water if it does not grind up.

I’m sure, you would go gaga over this, and would just go on licking fingers bowls and spoons 😛 Pair this awesome sabzi with anything, Steam Rice, Roti, Paratha, Naan, anything! 🙂
