Now that I am back from my annual vacation, I am trying to catch up with the pending to-do list which i left behind. Badly missing the extravaganza of Puja celebrations, pampering by my parents and delicious street food. As a result I am spending less time in the kitchen ;-) Presenting you a simple less oily, hassle free dessert called bread halwa.
6 Slices of Bread (I used brown bread here)
1 1/2 tbsp Ghee
1 cup Milk
1/4 cup Sugar
1.2 tsp Cardamom powder
A pinch of Saffron
Dry nuts mixed (Chasews, Almonds, Raisins)
In a frying pan take 2tsp ghee and fry the dry fruits. Keep aside.
Soak saffron in warm milk. Remove the hard crust from the bread slices and chop the slices coarsely. Add the remaining ghee in the frying pan and fry the bread pieces till golden brown color. Pour in the saffron infused milk on low heat and keep stirring. Add sugar and cardamom powder and mix well. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and garnish with fried dry fruits. You can also garnish the halwa with silver barak.
User Comments & Tips:
- This can be served as dessert or sweet dish but I make it often also for breakfast.
- For a richer flavor you can also add koya or condensed milk. But then accordingly you should adjust the sugar quantity .
- You can check the amount of milk to make the consistency of your choice.
