Double ka Meeta

​The festive of Diwali is never complete without lights and sweets. Unfortunately, my husband had to work on this day too..😔 My 2 year old patiently waited for her father to come home and open up the crackers….. Meanwhile, I decided to surprise him with one of his favourite dessert, double ka meeta.I was surprised when it took just 15 minutes to prepare and plate up..😜 

Recipe:
Serves: 3

Ingredients:

  • Rusk : 3
  • Milk: 1 1/2 cup
  • Almond: 4-5 finely chopped
  • Cashew: 4-5 finely chopped.
  • Condensed milk: 3-4 tbspn
  • Saffron

Method:

  1. Boil the milk in a non-stick pan.
  2. Add condensed milk, 3/4th of the chopped almond and cashew and a few strands of saffron.Stir it well.
  3. Dip the 3 rusk into it, take it out and keep them aside.(Please dont burn your hand or fingers☺)
  4. In a medium flame, let the milk reduce to half.
  5. Once reduced, check the sweetness.If needed, add accordingly.
  6. Let it cool.
  7. Pour the reduced milk mix over the rusk. Refrigerate it until time to serve.
  8. Garnish it with rest of the chopped almond and cashew. Also place a few strands of saffron and serve.

Tips:

  • One could add a pinch of cardamom powder for flavour to the milk while boiling.( My hubby hates it, hence I skipped it)
  • Condensed milk can be replaced with sugar. But then, cardamom powder has to be added for flavour.
  • For Double ka meeta, fried bread or rusk is first dipped into sugar syrup. And then, the reduced milk is poured over it. 
  • But I would say that dipping them into the boiling milk itself will do the trick.
  • Also, it is an advantage if the rusk is already a sweet one.😉

Enjoy the double ka meeta…☺☺
