      Recipe Notes

       

      1. For Soft and Juicy bread ka meetha, removing edges is important. When we fry the bread slices, the edges will become hard.
      2. Use puree ghee for frying bread slices. Most of them will not like too much ghee in dessert, they can fry bread slices with less ghee and oil.
      3. For a perfect double ka meetha, make sure the bread slices turned golden brown.
      4. While making sugar syrup add sugar and water at a time and dissolve sugar, otherwise the sugar will stick to the pan.
      5. Can use milkmaid or khoya instead of Rabri.
      6. If you want to use milkmaid or khoya, mix a cup of milkmaid or khoya into 3/4 cup of boiled milk and set aside.
      7. Check the texture of halwa, the bread should be juicy, do not dry it completely.
      8. Can refrigerate for a week. If you refrigerate double ka meetha, then heat it for 2 minutes before serving. Can serve chilled also.
