Double ka Meeta

Double Ka Meetha aka Bread halwa, is one of the classic Nizami Dessert, that hails form the city of Hyderabad,India. This dessert is referred as "king of Bread Puddings".

12 Milk Bread Slices
Oil+Ghee – to deep fry (I used 3/4 of oil and 1/4ghee, if not only oil also can be used)
Cashew nuts-halved(1fist full)
2cups Milk
1/4 cup Khova/khoa
6no. Cardamom(Powdered)
2cups Sugar

Sugar Syrup:

In a pan add sugar and water(just add 1/2 cup of water). Stir to dissolve and let the water boil on high for 10-12 minutes or until you get a sticky consistency.


Remove the bread form the pack and spread the slices on plate, let them air dry for 10-15mins.

Cut off the corner of the bread slices and slice them into triangles and dry roast them on tava till they are little stiff, remove from the heat and keep them aside.

Now heat the oil and ghee ( the ghee and oil should not be over heated).Roast the cashews till they get golden color and keep them aside. Deep fry the roasted bread slices on both sides till they are dark brown but should not burnt( take care while deep frying as bread gets burnt easily). Remove the fried crisp bread slices and keep them aside.

In a pan boil milk, once it starts to boil add khova/khoa and let it cook till it has reduced to half its original quantity, add cardamom powder and keep aside.

In a wide pan add the fried bread slices, fried cashews. Pour the prepared warm sugar syrup and the warm reduced milk into all over the fried bread slices in the pan. Cook on medium heat until the liquid has been evaporated, stir gently in between. Most of the people like to have this dessert warm, and some like it chilled. This warm dessert tastes heavenly when served with ice cream.
