Double ka Meetha/How to make Double ka Meetha

Double ka meetha is a complete nawabi dish from Hyderabad, double here is for the bread as we call bread double roti also,meetha is sweet.A very simple and quick dessert to make and serve if you have sudden guests in the house,this is different from shahi tukda where rabadi is used and here we are using milkmaid.Christmas has just gone, we all are heading for the year end being a little older and wiser☺and hoping the year ahead brings more luck and happiness to all with a good health. By saying, Christmas just remembered a personal experience which I would like to share with you all…

It was my daughter’s classmates birthday and her brother had planned for a surprise birthday party for her which he called and confirmed from us,whether Srishti is coming or not, initially we said no coz no parents were involved in it only kids planning thinks,but you know these kids make such faces that you feel like ok, my husband decided that he won’t leave her alone in the mall,we will also be there till she enjoys with her friend’s. In that manner we would also be relaxed as safety is also important right.

We arrived on time for the party but the host has not turned up yet??it’s been 1 hour still we were waiting, this was enough for my husband to loose his temper, we making him cool down just saying there’s traffic you see,it takes time.ok some more classmates turn up for party with their parents, my daughter is happy runs to catch up with friends in holidays otherwise its only school where they meet.Completely lost in her chit-chat,my husband is like where is the host😕now even i am loosing my cool..its high time

Daughter- Mom theirs a call from my friends brother saying pay the cab

Me- 🤔what?where are they and whom should i pay

Daughter- Mom please rush to the gate they are waiting

Me- Rushed to see a lady with the birthday girl

Lady-(Straight away says) i didn’t know I had to pay also

Me-with a stupid smile its ok ,I’ll pay it

We all came inside the mall,lady started talking that she was planning to give birthday surprise to her but instead they all planned…no issue i am paying for the party today as i am her mausi (aunt)

Me- completely blank just a few minutes before she didn’t have cash to pay for the cab and she’s giving party.

Lady – come lets cut the cake along

Me – no its for kids,let them enjoy

After 2 hours we came back to take her

Me -How was the party did you enjoy

Daughter- yes..but next time i won’t come🤔

Me -why?is everything alright

Daughter- yes mom only that I got bored

Me -Being the lady, just asked her did that aunty give you the cab money back

Daughter- No


I was guessing was i correct on thinking of receiving the money or did she trick me

Currently i am feeling like being fooled,its not about the money,its people’s behaviour

What difference did it make by doing such cheap trick

Only for me a lesson and good one which i can share with people and enjoy

Important was the happiness of my child☺just thought of sharing

  • 2 tablespoon Ghee for toasting the bread (if you wish use more)


  • Heat tawa spread ghee on it and place the breads on it

  • Once the bread is nicely toasted remove on a microwave plate
  • Pour milkmaid on them generously
  • With chopped dryfruit and elaichi powder
  • Now pour the saffron milk on each slice
  • Microwave it for 1 minute, so that the bread soaks up the milkmaid well
  • Remove and drizzle more milkmaid if you think its less sweet
