DOUBLE KA MEETA




Ingredients :
Bread - 200 gms
Ghee - 2 Tblsp
Milk - 1 ltr
Sugar - 2 Cups granulated (If powdered,reduce by 1 or 1 1/2 cups)
Cardamom - 6
Cashews - 1/2 Cup

Method :
1) Cut the edges of the bread,apply ghee on each slice and toast it(I prefer toasting instead of frying in a pan.Toasting requires minimal usage of ghee - for health reasons).Make 2-4 pieces of each slice.
2) Boil milk in medium low flame,keep stirring until the quantity becomes half.
3) Mean while make sugar syrup by adding little water to the sugar.The sugar syrup should be thick and sticky when taken in between two fingers.
4) Add the milk to the sugar syrup and boil for some time.Now this mixture should be little thick.
5)Powder the cashews,add it to the above mixture and let it boil for another 2-3 minutes.
6) Butter a plate or a vessel,place the bread pieces.Pour the above prepared mixture on to the bread.Let all the syrup be absorbed by the bread.Serve hot or cold as you prefer.Double ka meeta is ready!!
