About Bread Halwa Recipe

This delicacy is truly a delicious mouthwatering dessert. Paired with vanilla ice cream, it is an unbeatable match! I call it "Heaven in a plate".

Bread Halwa

Ingredients to make Bread Halwa

  • 6 slices of bread
  • cashew nuts 10 chopped roughly
  • raisins - 10
  • 3/4 cup milk boiled
  • 8 to 10 tbsp sugar
  • cardamom powder - a pinch
  • 6 tbsp ghee/oil + 6 tbsp for frying
  • salt a pinch
  • water - 8 tbsp
  • ghee for flavour - 4 tbsp

How to make Bread Halwa

  1. Heat a pan, add a little oil or ghee and toast the bread slices one by one until golden brown.
  2. Now add little more ghee and toast the raisins and cashew nuts until done.
  3. Heat the sugar with water to make a single string consistency sugar syrup. Add a pinch of elaichi powder and salt to the syrup.
  4. Add the bread slices and the milk to the sugar syrup. Let them boil well until it thickens.
  5. Keep stirring the mixture until the halwa starts to leave the sides of the pan.
  6. Finally add 2 to 3 tbsp of ghee and keep stirring until the desired consistency is reached. Switch off the flame.
  7. Lastly add the nuts and the raisins and mix well. Serve it warm or cold.

My Tip:

I like it better the next day served cold as the flavours infuse well and enhances the taste. Can add 2-3 tbsp of powdered cashew nuts and almonds for extra flavour.
