"Shahi" means royal, and Shahi Tukra ( a kind of bread pudding) is indeed a royal dessert. It originated in Pakistan and people got to know about it during the Mughal era. It is interesting that although Bangladesh is a result of partition in post colonial era, the cultural and traditional ties that overlap India, Pakistan and Bangladesh are strong, for which this recipe is still popular. The Shahi Tukra is delicious by itself, and is cooked during special occasions, such as Eid or parties.
