Dip each bread slice into the sugar syrup and turn a few times to thoroughly soak. Place on a platter and repeat with the rest
Finish with a generous spoon of rabri and chopped nuts.

Tips for Cooking

Ideally, you would want to cut the bread yourself, so you get thicker slices. But if this is not possible, store-bought slices will work fine.
Adding to the first tip, the tastiest shahi tukda would come from baking fresh homemade bread, nothing beats it!
If you notice that the bread is gaining color too quickly, lower the flame or add more slices in so that they take a little time to get color. This ensures that it becomes super crispy.
Be sure to pat the excess oil otherwise the syrup wont soak in.
You can choose to add saffron and some rose water to the syrup.
