Bread Halwa


From this month, the marathon is going to be for 4 weeks - each one with 3 days of posting. And so, this edition of marathon seemed like a breeze and it's time already for the final post for the first week of BM#17. 
It's bread halwa's turn today under "Kheer / Halwa" theme. Like poori payasam, this is a dish I haven't made it in years though couldn't figure out why. :)) It is easy and can be prepared at a moment's notice besides being yummy. I should say the kind I prefer. :)

Ingredients:
12 bread slices ( I usually go with brown bread. This time however I have used white one and hence I think the color of halwa was lighter.)
1 cup milk
1/4 cup ghee
3 - 4 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
Nuts to garnish

Method:
* Remove the crusts from the bread slices and cut the bread into small pieces. Toast them in the ghee until golden brown and keep them aside. 
* Heat the milk in a pan. Add sugar and cardamom and wait until sugar dissolves. Add the bread pieces and cook on low flame until they get cooked and incorporated into the milk. Turn off the stove and garnish with nuts.
* This can be served either warm or chilled.



Tip:
Freeze the crusts instead of trashing and when you have collected a substantial amount, just process them to prepare your own bread crumbs.

Good one. Love bread halwa. It has been a long long time since I made it at home. But do you think so much ghee is required?

If you need to toast the bread slices real good, that much is essential in my opinion. :)

Nisha said...

Oh, lovely. That sounds like a real quick and fuss-free recipe. I never tried or ate Bread Halwa.

Recently I've come across Bread Ras Malai and Bread Gulab Jamun. And now with this, bread is becoming my favorite substitute! :D
