    Leftover Pita bread or chapatti 2 nos.

    Whole milk 1cup

    Heavy cream cup

    Fresh cream cup

    Chopped or sliced mixed nuts of your choice (I have used Almonds, pistachios, cashew and raisins.)

    Ghee 1 teaspoon

    Saffron few strands

    Sugar 2 tablespoon

    Plain evaporated milk (optional) 2 tablespoon


    Apply ghee to the leftover pita bread or chapatti and either bake it in oven for 10 minutes on 200 degree centigrade or roast it on a pan until brown and crisp. Break them and place in an oven proof dish. Sprinkle the chopped or sliced nuts over it generously.

    In a saucepan heat the milk, along with sugar, saffron and evaporated milk. When it starts boiling, add the heavy cream and let it further boil for a minute. Pour this mixture over the roasted bread. Preheat oven on 220 degree centigrade. Spread the fresh cream over the prepared mixture and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Let it stand for few minutes. Enjoy it warm.
