Double Ka Meetha

BM # 8 Day 7

The Nizami kitchen of Hyderabad had some delicious rich desserts.Among these Double Ka Meetha is the king of desserts.One could say a version of Shahi Tukde,which is Awadi.The name Double comes from the bread dough which rises to the double…and roti is a variety of Indian bread…so double roti..and meetha of course is sweet ..so ..double ka meetha.
I am an ardent lover of Shahi Tukde,but Double Ka Meetha ..this was my first trial and it turned out absolutely gorgeous.Here I will not forget to thank Mona of Zaiqa.I tweaked her recipe..we can serve it hot,warm or chilled.I served it warm but one can serve according to the season.In winters you could serve it piping hot from the oven ,may be with ice cream.You could even serve it for breakfast when you have some special guests coming in.Today being the last day of this BM I wanted to end up with a sweet note and so here is....Double Ka Meetha......
