  • 10 bread slices
  • 2 tablespoons clarified butter/ghee
  • 5-6 cashews
  • 5-6 almonds
  • 1 tablespoons chirongi
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 2 cups (500ml) milk
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons condensed milk

Steps In Making

  • Take the bread slices and with the help of a knife cut all their sides equally.
  • Not cut all of them into small square pieces and keep them aside.
  • In a kadai heat ghee and then add chopped cashews, almonds and chirongi. Saute them for a couple of minute or until it gets a light golden colour. Now remove them in a bowl.
  • Now add raisins and fry them for 30 -40 seconds or until they swell up. Now remove them in a bowl.
  • In the same kadai add the bread and while stirring occasionally cook on medium heat for 5-6min minutes or until it gets a light golden colour and turns crispy.
  • Add milk and gently mix them. Cook for 2-3 minutes, the bread will soak all the milk.
  • Further add sugar, condensed milk and saffron milk. Cook on medium flame for 4-5 minutes or until the bread turns soft.
  • Now add the fried nuts, raisins, crushed cardamom and ghee. It will be turned like a  creamy halwa like texture.
  • Mix and roast the bread halwa on medium flame for 3-4 minutes or until it starts to separate from the pan.
