Shaahi Tukda by Sukriti Nigam

Atlanta, Georgia, US


I love this Indian-Mughlai Dessert that's most popular in the northern part of India. Although, there is another part of southern India that claims it's there's. Before it's even decided whose it is, we all enjoy the scrumptious & delectable taste of 'Shaahi' - meaning Royal, 'Tukda' - meaning a piece. It's covered some beautiful garnishings of edible silver called- 'Warq', rose petals, pistachios & almond silvers. This recipe was prepared best by my Grandfather who aced Mughlai cooking. A tribute to him & all the olden days Lucknowi cooks.
