Instant Khajuri Shahi Tukada/ Double ka Meetha

Ok so again the same craving. Something sweet but something different and should be healthy too. How is it possible every time? You know what, it is possible. Dates (Khajur) has all the good qualities and it helps you to increase your Hemoglobin levels in your blood stream. So decided to try something with it along with assorted nuts. This time master chef came to my rescue. So made this instant khajuri shahi tukada and just came to know today that it is also called as Double ka Meetha in AP, India. Traditionally it is also called as Khajuri Shahi Tukada and the bread is deep fried in ghee, but to keep it little simple and healthy I have shallow fried it. Hope you all like my version of this recipe.


  1. Bread slices: 4-6
  2. Milk: 1 ½ Cup
  3. Sugar: ½ Cup
  4. Green cardamom powder: 1 Tsp
  5. Seedless Dates/ Khajur: 8-10
  6. Clarified butter/ Ghee: 8-10 Tbsp. 
  7. Almonds: 8-10 (blanched, peeled and sliced) 
  8. Pistachios: 8-10 (blanched, peeled and sliced) 
  9. Rose water: 1-2 Tbsp. (optional) 
  10. Warm Rabadi: 2 Cups


  1. Take bread slices and with the help of any cookie cutter or mold (heart shape, circle, triangular etc.) cut shapes out of them.
  2. Cut the dates in very small pieces. If you feel the dates are little hard then microwave them for 10-12 sec. 
  3. Chop the nuts and keep them aside.
  4. Take milk in a non-stick pan and add sugar to it. Now add cardamom powder. Warm the milk on medium-law flame, keep stirring it continuously. Scrape the sides too and now let the milk boil. At this time if you like rose flavor, put rose water in the milk and stir it (this step is completely optional)
  5. Now take another non-stick pan and put ghee in it. Put bread slices in the ghee and shallow fry it till nice golden-brown color. Drain all the ghee and put it in the milk.
  6. Take the bread slices out of the milk and put them aside.
  7. Take a bowl and mix dates and chopped nuts together. Make a pattice of this mixture.
    Since I cut the bread in heart shape, I made date pattice in heart shape too. 
  8. Now take serving plate and put prepared rabadi as a base. I have a very easy recipe for instant rabadi. You may want to click on the link for this rabadi. Put one slice of bread which was dipped in milk and then put date pattice and top it with one more milk bread. 
  9. Top it with rabadi and garnish with dates and nuts.
  10. Serve it chilled or warm, preference is yours.
  11. Presenting to you a very healthy yet quick recipe of our favorite sweet.
