This is a traditional Sindhi breakfast dish. We make it on special occasions when we have guests at home. Usually the bread slices are made whole or cut into triangular or rectangular shapes just by cutting them into two. I have given them a round shape using a cutter. The sides can be used to make masala bread or even bread crumbs after drying them for later use. If you are making for kids you can even cut out fancy shapes using different cutters.
Bread Slices ...6 or as needed
Sugar - 2 cups
Water - 1 cup
Cardamoms - 4
Saffron - a pinch
Rose water .. few drops (optional)
Oil or ghee for frying
Pistachios... few for garnishing
1. Cut the bread slices in a round shape using a cutter or a bottle lid.
2. Fry till golden brown and crisp.
3. Make a thick syrup with sugar, water, saffron and cardamoms. Add rose water after it is cooled. 4. A few hours before serving, place the bread coins in a flat dish, pour the sugar syrup over them with a spoon and let them soak for about 1-2 hours or until they are softer.
5. Garnish with sliced pistachios.

This would make a lovely dessert as it has saffron and cardamoms. Almost like gulab jamuns.ReplyDelete

What a unique recipe using bread. I think I'd rather enjoy this dish as a dessert than breakfast.ReplyDelete
Yes dear .. you can.. actually I made a fusion dessert with this.. spread some soft mawa and sprinkle pistachio powder over it.. just reduce the sugar content in the syrup.Delete
