Recipe Tips


Place bread cubes in large bowl.  Add milk; stir to evenly soak bread cubes with milk.  Refrigerate 3 to 4 hours. 


Spoon bread mixture into large saucepan; stir in sugar. Cook on medium heat 3 to 4 min. or until heated through, stirring frequently.  Meanwhile, mix water and cornstarch until blended. 


Add dissolved cornstarch to ashta (bread mixture) in saucepan; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until thickened. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in rose water.


Pour ashta through fine-mesh strainer into medium bowl, pressing solids through strainer to remove any lumps.  Refrigerate ashta 1 hour or until chilled.


Spoon 1/2 cup ashta evenly onto crackers just before serving; top with nuts and rose petals.  Store remaining ashta in refrigerator up to 3 days before using as desired.
