Easiest sweet dish to make, Mithi dhabhal is nothing but deep fried bread soaked in cardamom flavored sugar syrup.
  • 8 bread slices
  • 100 gm Sugar
  • Half cup of water
  • 2-3 Green cardamoms
  • Saffron, a pinch (optional)
  • Few drops of rose water/essence (optional)
  • Oil/ghee for frying
  • Nuts for garnishing
  1. Cut bread slices in desired shape. I generally cut each slice in 4 quarters or even disc shape, using a small katori.
  2. Heat oil in the pan and deep fry the bread pieces in hot oil on medium flame, till golden brown. Drain on tissue paper.
  3. In a pan, mix sugar and water and add slightly crushed cardamom.Let the mixture boil till bubbles appear. The consistency of syrup should be similar to that of Gulabjamun syrup. If using, add saffron too.
  4. Put off the flame, and add rose water or essence.
  5. Now soak the fried bread in the warm sugar syrup for few minutes and remove them on a serving plate using slotted spoon or fork.
  6. If you prefer crisp bread then use less warm syrup and reduce the soaking time.Inversely if you like the bread to have soft gulabjamun like bite, then make sure you dunk your fried bread in tad hot syrup.
  7. Garnish with chopped nuts.
  8. Could be served warm or cold.
