Recipe Notes

Use white bread only to make this dessert. This dessert is an occasional treat so indulge :).

Use ghee for frying the bread. Frying in oil will never give you that authentic taste.

Do not over fry the bread. They fry very fast so be very attentive during the process.

You can thicken the milk faster by adding milkmaid to it.

If you don't have an over, you can keep the pan on a griddle over stove top. Simmer the heat and cover the pan with a lid. Cook on low heat for 20-25 minutes for everything to come together.

You can refrigerate the sweet and then microwave it when ready to serve.

You can half or double the recipe a well according to your need.

Adding saffron is totally optional. I did not add it this time, but I mostly add it for even more richer flavour. Here is a picture of Dabal ka Meetha with Saffron in the milk mixture.
