In a heavy bottom wide pan add milk, let it come to the boil, stir in between.
After the milk has come to the boil turn the flame to medium high and cook it while stirring it continuously. Scrap the sides as well while stirring. (you may also cook he flame over slow flame, that way you don't need to stir it continuously).
After 10 minutes the milk will reduce to half, now add sugar, cardamom powder, and saffron in it in it, mix well.
Add half of chopped nuts in the milk and keep the remaining aside for later use. Continue cooking the milk for another 7 minutes.
After the time the milk will be reduced more, turn the flame to low now.
In another bowl take milk and add corn starch/flour in it, mix well to make a slurry.
Slowly add this slurry in the milk mixture while stirring continuously so that lumps may not form, cook for another 2-3 minutes.
When the milk start to make bubbles rabdi is ready, pour it in another bowl to let it come to the room temperature.
Trim the brown sides of bread.
In 3/4 cup of milk add sugar and mix till the sugar dissolve completely. Keep it aside.
In the base of serving dish pour some rabdi as a thin layer and spread it.
Make a layer of bread slices over this rabdi layer, use bread slices according to the size of your serving dish.
Pour the prepared sweet milk over these bread slices, do not oversoak the slices.
Spread a layer of rabdi over these slices, again make a layer of bread slices and soak these with sweet milk.
Add the final portion of rabdi over the 2 layer of soaked bread. (a bit more quantity of rabdi will be used here as this will be the top layer of cake).
Spread some chopped nuts over the top.
Put the dish in the fridge for about 60 minutes. When the top surface of cake is a bit dry it is ready to serve.
No bake bread rabdi cake is ready to enjoy.
_____________ Tips: If you will add 2 tablespoon of water in the pan before adding milk in it, the milk will not stick to the bottom.
We will divide the rabdi in 3 portions, 2 portions will be equal and the 3 portion will be a bit more in quantity as it will be the top layer of cake.
