Shahi Tukda Recipe - Without Frying And Sugar Syrup
This easy shahi tukda is non-fried and made without using sugar syrup, so that you can enjoy this instant shahi tukda whenever you crave for it.
This is an easy indian dessert to make during festivals like holi, diwali and eid. This is very popular recipe in the hyderabadi / awadhi cuisine.
Shahi tukda is a rich mughlai dessert, which is usually made by deep frying the bread slices, soaking it in sugar syrup, and then toping it with thick luscious rabri (reduced milk). But i gave a twist to the recipe and made a quicker and easier version of this royal sweet. You can prepare this quick and easy shahi tukda within few minutes.
And the best part is you don’t have to worry about the leftover sugar syrup unlike the traditional version. As it is a non-fried version it’s a little healthier too.
I hope you like the idea of making it this way. Do try the recipe and do not forget to share your beautiful creations with us on instagram or facebook.

- 4 bread slices (i used 50-50, try not to use whole meal).
- 1 tablespoon ghee for each bread slice.
- 1 tablespoon sugar for each slice of bread.
- ½ cup fresh cream or malai.
- 1 tablespoon sugar for malai (optional).
- Some chopped pistachio for garnish or any other nut of your choice.
Heat a pan or tawa and lightly dry roast bread slice for 30 seconds on each side at low to medium flame.
Do not brown, this step is just to remove the extra moisture from the bread. Once done remove and keep aside.
Now add a tablespoon of ghee and a tablespoon of sugar in the same pan.
Once the sugar is melted mix it once.
Now place the bread over it and coat it in this mixture of melded sugar and ghee. Bread will absorb all the liquid and will turn sweet.
Now cook it on low flame util the bread gets crisp and get caramelized.
Once done remove and keep aside. Repeat the same process for the rest of the breads.
Take fresh cream or malai and mix it with a tablespoon of sugar, if using.
Cut and arrange the bread slices on a plate.
Once you are ready to serve spread the cream over it. Make sure the bread slices are not hot when you spread the cream over it.
Garnish with some chopped nuts of your choice and serve immediately.
- You can use any type bread for this but white bread tastes best, though i used half and half and it worked perfectly fine. Avoid using whole meal bread.
- It is advised to cut the sides of the bread to ensure the even coloring after toasting.
- Be careful while frying the breads, it turns hot with the caramelized sugar.
- You can also add some ilaichi powder or saffron to flavour the cream.
- You can keep the bread pieces ready and assemble it just before serving. That way, they would not turn soggy.
