Few words about Bread halwa:
    This bread halwa sweet my mom makes during diwali..Its a creamy ,rich dessert that can make you feel like having one more bite.We kids love bread halwa equally like gulab jamunmaavu urundai and Boondi Ladoo.No body can make it out that its made out of bread.

Recipe Category: Indian / Sweet
Preparation Time: 15 minutes Cooking Time: 20 minutes Serves: 3 cups
  • 10-11 bread slices.
  • 2 cups milk/paal.
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar/sarkarai.
  • 3 tsp ghee/nei.
  • 1 cardamom(crushed).
  • 1 tsp ghee/nei
  • few badam/cashews
  • dried grapes/kismiss.
  • Don't over cook  after the halwa thickens and comes together.
  • If you over cook it, no problem, place them in greased surface and cut it down.
  • You can add more ghee if required, but this much ghee and sugar itself is more than enough to get the richness the halwa needs.
Method of Preparation:
  • Roast the bread slices until crispy in tava.
  • Tare it to pieces and make bread crumbs by grinding it in mixer.
  • Add a tsp of ghee to tava and add the crushed bread crumbs.
  • Roast it for 2-3 minutes until they get crispier again.
  • Add sugar. 
  • Add cold milk to the bread.Bread gets all the milk.
  • Mix food colour to little water.You can add the colour to halwa now.
  • Mix all of them together until mixed up.
  • When halwa thickens add 1 tsp of ghee at a time.
  • Add crushed cardamom powder to the halwa as well.
  • In another pan/tava add tsp of ghee.
  • Fry badam/cashews and dried grapes until golden brown and add it to halwa.
  • Bread halwa is ready to serve.
  • If you want to store the halwa,cool and store it in an airtight container.
