Serving ideas – Now I am just tutorial purpose sharing the recipe for 4 people. If you want to make so many of these, just multiply the amount of ingredients used.

More tips-
• You can also cut the breads in triangular shape. As this is very common I have cut it in rectangular shape.
• If you lack milk or you have no enough milk in handy, just add some milk power to make the proper consistency of the malai (khir). But make sure that there is no limp formed.
• You can also use strawberries for garnish purpose instead of cherry.
• Don’t stop stirring to avoid adhesion of the malai with kadhai (cooking pot).
• Also if you stop stirring during the khir making, you may not get that smooth effect in it.
• Use oils if you have problem with ghee.
• If you don’t like much sweetness just take less amount of sugar.
• I have used skimmed milk here but you can use full cream milk. That is your choice.
