Ladies Delight ( an Oriental dessert )

Wonder why this Oriental dish is so-called… perhaps its ease and simplicity delights the women folk??
I would say it should be renamed - ‘Men’s delight’, as my better-half was extremely ‘delighted’ whilst relishing it. I leave the whys and wherefores of this to you…after all ‘what’s in a name’.
I had once seen this recipe stuck on a Nestle’ cream tin but hadn’t tried it, until one of my colleagues brought it to office. Just follow the simple steps and the end result is a scrumptious, mouth-watering dessert and it’s over even before you go for the second piece!
So let’s get our ingredients ready and start off!

All you need:

Sandwich bread-8 slices
Nestle’ cream- 1 small tin
Rosewater- 1 tsp
For Sugar syrup: Boil 1 cup of water with ½ cup sugar for 10mins.(Syrup shouldn’t be thick)
Oil for frying
Pistachio or cashew nut flakes for garnish.


Remove the crust of the bread slices and flatten each of them using a rolling pin. Mix cream and rosewater in a bowl. (you can prepare this without rosewater also). Spread ½ tbsp of cream over the slice and roll it. Use a paste of refined flour ( 3 tsp flour+1 tbsp water) to stick the sides. Press the sides so that the cream does not come out while frying. Deep fry this in hot oil until golden brown. The bread will absorb a lot of oil, but don’t panic. Remove from pan and place on kitchen paper to drain out excess oil. Dip this in the sugar syrup and place on serving dish. If you don’t want it to be too sweet then you may place the fried pieces on the serving dish and drizzle the syrup on it with a spoon. Garnish with crushed pistachio or cashew nut (I’ve used cashew nut).
Serve hot.
