1 Mix plant based milk, sugar, milk masala, corn flour mixed milk, cardamom & nutmeg powder and bring it to a boil on medium flame.

2 When it starts boiling reduce flame to low and boil until mixture turns thick but stays pouring consistency. Stir in between to prevent sticking.

3 Turn off the flame. Add the rose essence and let it cool at room temperature.

4 Cut the bread slices diagonally into 2 or 4 pieces, shallow fry them in a pan on low flame till golden brown and crisp. Transfer them to a plate.

5 Arrange the crisp toast pieces in layers on a serving plate. Pour the flavoured milk on the top ensuring the toast pieces are covered and soak up the milk.

6 Garnish with chopped dry fruits and nuts before serving.
