Double Ka Meetha Recipe / Bread Sweet Recipe / Hyderabadi Double Ka Meetha Recipe



One of my viewer requested this recipe oneday, i had all the ingredients on hand, so made it instantly. This recipe is similar to my shahi tukda. This is a simpler version, there is another version which they will bake the whole thing. But i want to keep it simple so didn't bake it, but i am telling you, it taste phenomenal.And if you need any recipe that i need to make, just mail me through this. I will surely make it oneday.


This is so easy to make for big parties. Traditionally the bread is deep fried, but to make it healthier. I just pan fry it. But this didn't affect the taste at all. So give this is a try and let me know how it turned out..

  6. I like the way you showed us the steps to prepare this sweet. Recently my mother prepared it at home and I loved it very much.

  7. This is very similar to English "bread & butter pudding" which doesn't have cashew nuts and is baked in the oven. The bread is sometimes buttered first & put in a dish to bake in the oven, not fried first. Interesting to find your recipe!
