Main Equipment Used

Steps In Making

  1. Take the bread slices and with the help of a knife cut all their sides.
  2. Now cut them into small square pieces and keep them aside.
  3. In a kadai heat ghee and then add roughly chopped cashews, almonds and chirongi. Sauté them for a minute or until it gets a light golden colour. Once done, remove them in a bowl.
  4. Now add raisins and fry them for 30 seconds or until they swell up. Once done remove them in a bowl.
  5. In the same kadai add the bread and while stirring occasionally cook on medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until it gets a light golden colour and turns crispy.
  6. Add milk and gently mix them. Cook for 2 minutes, the bread will soak all the milk.
  7. Further add sugar, condensed milk and saffron milk. Cook on medium flame for 3-4 minutes or until the bread turns soft.
  8. Now add the fried nuts, raisins, crushed cardamom and ghee. It will get a creamy halwa like texture.
  9. Give it a good mix and roast the bread halwa on medium flame for 3-4 minutes or until it starts to separate from the pan.
  10. Serve hot!
