Cut the bread slices into half, lengthwise, and deep fry in hot ghee, till crisp.
Dissolve the sugar in the milk and bring to a boil, and keep aside till cool enough to handle.
Dip the bread in the milk and sugar solution, and arrange the pieces in a serving dish, in one layer.
Mix the rose water in the `rabri' and spoon it over the bread slices, to cover all of them.
Spoon the malai or cream over the center of each slice.
Garnish the vark over this, in case you are using it.
Garnish with almonds, pistachios, rose petals and the saffron strands. Serve hot or chilled.
