• 1/4 cup Sugar
• 1/4 cup Water
• 1 Cardamom powder
• Few strands of saffron

Method :
Cut bread slices diagonally to form 2 triangles. Keep the bread aside for about 2 hours, so that it becomes hard.

Now  To make the sugar syrup, mix sugar and water and set the mixture to boil. Now, simmer the solution for about 10 minutes and add powdered elachi into it.

Take a pan and set the milk to boil.Add chopped pistas and almonds pieces, 3-4 tsp sugar. Simmer it until it reduces to 1/4th quantity. Simultaneously, keep stirring occasionally so that it does not stick to the pan. Add few strands of saffron to the thickened milk.

Now Apply ghee on the sides of the bread and lightly fry/roast them until they turn golden brown on both sides or you can even deep fry bread slices in ghee or oil.

Arrange the fried bread on a plate. Pour the sugar syrup onto the bread and wait until it seeps down. Now, spread the milk mixture onto the bread and sprinkle some almonds, pista and saffron strands over it. Freeze it and serve when it is chill!
