Recipe Notes For Shahi Tukda

  • Use full fat milk for thick rabri
  • Don’t cook rabdi on high flame else milk will stick to the bottom and sides of the pan.
  • Let the rabdi cool down for sometime before scraping the cream from the sides of the pan, else the lacchedar rabdi wont be formed.
  • If the sugar syrup will not have the proper consistency then the bread will become soggy, so cook till it get a one string consistency.
