Indian Bread Pudding/ Shahi Tukda

This is an Indian style bread pudding , it is a very rich ,exotic and flavourful dish . I make this whenever I want an easy dessert  , so here goes.............


6-8 white bread cut diagonally 
450 gm sugar 
600 ml water
a pinch of cardamom powder
oil for frying 
2-3 tbsp rose water 
4 cups milk 
1 can of sweetened condensed milk 
2-3 tbsp all purpose flour 
4 tbspn milk 
1/4 toasted chopped almonds


In a deep pan boil the water and sugar till all the sugar dissolves and add the cardamom powder to it .
Deep fry the bread pieces till it turns golden brown and drain on absorbent paper.
Soak the fried bread in the sugar syrup for a few sec , do not soak it in for long as the bread will come apart .
Arrange the soaked bread in the bottom of a serving dish and just sprinkle some more of the syrup on it . 
Sprinkle the rose water on the bread peices and set aside .
In another pan bring the milk and condensed milk to a boil .
Mix the flour and the 4 tbsp milk into a paste and stir it in the boiling milk and cook it on low flame till the mixture thickens .
Pour this mixture on top of the bread and top it with the toasted almonds and chill and serve .
