Double Ka Meetha is a desi version of English bread pudding. And I must tell you it tastes equally delicious and decadent. Double Ka Meetha is the kind of dessert you want to make for the festive celebration. It has a mouth melting texture, sweet tempting aroma and an amazing character around it. How can one not like this royal dessert? Double Ka Meetha is the perfect Indian dessert for the large gatherings and totally scrumptious enough to pull compliments from the family and friends.
The name Double Ka Meetha comes from the local dialect word “Double Roti” which refers to milk bread or western style bread, the reason it is called double roti is it swells up to almost double its original size after baking. Maybe somehow the word about the British Bread and Butter Pudding reached the royal Nizam kitchen and some talented royal chef created this iconic dessert Double Ka Meetha.
The ghee and the milk for my double ka meetha come straight from the Whyte Farms. Spread over 25 acres of land on the border of Rajasthan, this beautiful farm is able to keep more than 500 cows. A haven for cattle at its luxurious best. At the Whyte Farms, cows are neither ties down nor caged. They are free to graze, admire, moonwalk and enjoy their day at the farm. After all, it’s the happy cows that give the best quality milk.
And the good news is the produce of Whyte Farms is free of any insecticide, pesticide or chemicals. In fact, they use the most advanced technology to milk the cows. The fresh milk then passes through the PHE pipelines and its chilled to 4-degree Celsius immediately. The process preserves the milk and keeps the nutrients of the milk intact. Most of the farms in India don’t have this technology yet making the Whyte Farms a pioneer in the industry.
This festive season I am sticking to Whyte Farms milk and ghee to prepare deliciously safe and unadulterated dishes for my family. And why not? Because they deliver each product with great care at your doorstep. So all of you have to do is list down your milk requirement for the festive season, punch your order and then prepare your favorite desserts without worrying about the quality of the milk.
Dairy is the lifeline of an everyday Indian meal. It is high time we start embracing initiatives like the Whyte Farms to promote the quality dairy products. And so no to synthetic and adultered milk products forever. I am taking a pledge this festive season to spread the organic goodness with the Whyte Farms. Hope you too, join us in this good cause!
