Bread Halwa/ Pudding
I Know recently that I have not been very active in posting/blogging/blog hopping, reason being many ( kids busy schedule, get togethers). Will be back in action soon. But, today did not want to miss posting anything as it is my Wedding Anniversary. Though I did not make this sweet today, just felt like posting a sweet which I had prepared few weeks back.
This is a very simple sweet that can be prepared in a jiffy or when you feel there is some unused bread at home that had to be consumed very soon. Can prepare it when you have unexpected guests as the time for preparation is very very less compared to other halwas.
Bread Slices - around 10 to 12( Use unsalted bread or plain bread)
Milk - 3 cups
Sugar - 1 cup( more or less as desired)
Ghee - 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder - 2 pinch
Cashew pieces - few
Almonds/Pista - few crushed(optional for crunchness)
Remove the crust of the slices and tear into small pieces.
Heat ghee in a pan and add cashew pieces, when lightly brown remove and keep aside.
In the same remaining ghee add bread slices and fry till golden brown and crisp.
(An other form of frying is remove the crust and apply butter or ghee and shallow fry on tawa or in a toaster and then cut or break into pieces. OR can fully deep fry in ghee for super taste :D)
Immediately add milk and reduce flame. Let it to boil and cook. Wait till the bread is soft and melted. Add in more milk if it thickens or if not add sugar and cook. Wait for 5 minutes, also add cardamom powder and crushed almonds and pista. Mix well. Finally add fried cashew pieces. Mix and serve.
