4 tbs Fresh Milk 
3/4 cup Sugar
1 cup WaterFew strands of Saffron
1/2 tsp Cardamon powder
Oil to fry
Finely sliced Almonds and pistachio (for garnishing)  

  • Trim off the brown edges from the bread and soak them in milk for a few mins.
  • Now knead the bread to a soft smooth dough and shape into marble size balls.
  • Take sugar, water and cardamon powder in a pan. Boil it and make a thick syrup. Keep on very low flame.
  • Add the saffron strands to the syrup.
  • Meanwhile heat oil in a deep bottom pan on medium high flame and fry the bread balls till golden brown.
  • Drain the bread balls on the kitchen towel and immediately drop them into the syrup.
