Bread Halwa

Bread Halwa

There are lots of delicacies which our mothers used to make and we used to relish. But during the course of time, they are forgotten and we keep on trying our hands making cakes and chocolates and other baking goodies (Myself being on the top of the list). Even though I also don't know many of these but would like to share some of these with all my friends. I would also like my blogger friends to come out with more of these not so 'popular kinds'. Please leave a comment if u like them or try them or suggest any more possible changes.

Today I am starting with a very simple yet very delicious Indian desert 'Halwa'. Everybody makes halwa of some or other kind but I just love this. Though its loaded with calories but the devine taste will surely lessen the guilt . Do try it once.


10 Bread slices(white)
4 tbsp of thick malai ( fresh cream)
(substitute 2/3 cup of fresh cream if u don't get malai)
2 tbsp of ghee (clarified butter)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
pinch of cardamom powder
a few almonds, pistachos
a few strands of saffron


1. Soak the bread slices in milk and squeeze them.
2. Put malai and ghee in a kadahai (wok) and put it on the gas top.
3. Put the slices in it and bhuno (lightly roast) on low flame till a light brown colour.
(This will take a little time and energy)
4. As the bread gets it colour and starts to leave the sides add the sugar and bhuno for a few more minutes.
5. Turn off the gas.
6. Add the slivered almonds and a pinch of cardamom powder.
6. Garnish with saffron and pistachos.
7. Serve hot.
