Priya Makes Shahi Toast | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 20 December 2018
  • Join Priya in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes shahi toast! The name may be a bit confusing as it's not toast in the traditional sense, but a no-bake bread pudding with cardamon, sugar and lots of heavy cream.

    Hi friends, it's Priya! If you're into Shahi Toast and wanted more recipes like this one and other antics from my family, you can pre-order my book, Indian-ish, on Amazon, right this way:

      Just an FYI... Uncrustables, buttered and grilled in a cast iron skillet = Amazing

      "They're so shameless...over there"?! What? What do you think of software companies here in America, that rip off other companies' ideas? There are some pretty famous ones who do that, you know? Would you call it a business model now? Boy, what a case of ethno-self-rejection.

      Would it be acceptable to do this dish with multiple layers of bread?

      Such a simple two minute recipe ....extended for unnecessary 14 full minutes.

      @Chris Hannah most people consider things like this racist only if a white person says it. I think people are more observant of racism in white people than other races so they let these kind of racist remarks go uncommented.

    I am not rewatching this video for the recipe, but rather for the flawless shade starting at 00:54

      Tip: Save the shell of the cardamom pod and throw it in when you make chai. There is still a lot of flavor in the shell

                      the origin of Shahi tukda is a bit vague as to whether it came from Mughal or Nizams of Hyderabad. However, it originated after the arrival of Europeans in India. Apparently, the king suggested the use of bread with rabdi and the royal cook made them.

                          Really??? You add 2 tablespoons of water to the bottom of the pan to "coat" the pan and that is sufficient to prevent the cream from sticking and burning? After you stirred the cream and will surely have mixed the itsy bitsy quantity of water into the sigfnificantly larger volume of cream and thinned it just a microscopic tad? Looks like one of those things that don't really make sense but is still followed just because someone else did it and **thought** it did the trick and prevented sticking and burning. SMH.

                                        This particular dish is way more complicated than how Priya made it. In rajasthan it is known as "Shahi kesar rabri toast". It is called Shahi (royal) because of the complexity of the dish as well as the cost and time required to make it. Until a decade ago an average Indian household wouldn't have been able to afford this dish twice a month.

                                        Generally instead of using heavy cream we use full fat buffalo milk and cook it over medium low heat untill it reduces to 1/5 of the volume. Also Everytime the milk fats creates a layer on top we skim it to side. Add sugar after reduction and add kesar(saffron) and cardamom and cook it for a little while. This milk concoction is called Rabri.
                                        Furthermore we deepfry the white bread in ghee till golden brown. It's like fried dough at that point.
                                        Assemble the way Priya did it and enjoy after chilling it.
